Regional alliances for iron-rich beans in Latin American countries

Agriculture in LAC, in particular Family Farming (AF), forms the basis of the regional population's food supply.  It is estimated that it provides 80% of the food consumed daily and the total number of productive units is close to 15 million. In the context of the current pandemic and in the years to come, producers will need new knowledge and timely support to avoid shortages and strengthen the ...

Nanotechnology in agricultural soil moisture management

Soil is the basis of terrestrial ecosystems and agriculture, it participates in the cycle of nutrients, the storage, and infiltration of water, the support of plants, and microbial activity. Progressive soil degradation and desertification processes advance rapidly in countries of the Andean region, reducing agricultural production, which negatively impacts the economy of rural families, causing h...

Resilient potatoes to climate change for the Andean region

This project is a consortium among institutions leading in research, development and innovation in Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia, as well as the potato production sector in the Andean region. Its main goal is to reduce vulnerability to climate change with the incorporation of new families and advanced potato clones with early maturity and resilient to drought. This will be carried out through the ...

Reducing bioprocess of the solubility rhizospheric Cd

Successful marketing of Latin-American Fine Aroma National cocoa is hampered by high cadmium (Cd) content in the beans. For this, we will formulate an innovative, highly efficient and climatically intelligent bioprocess to reduce the solubility of Cd in the rhizosphere of cocoa plants with a protocol suitable for transfer to cocoa farms. The bioprocess will involve: (a) isolation of a soil fungi c...

Higher agricultural production with lower nitrous oxide emission

Agriculture produces 60% of the emission of nitrous oxide (N2O), one of the three main greenhouse gases responsible for global warming. Paradoxically, agriculture is extremely sensitive to climate change, a fact that generates the need to promote climate-smart technological innovation policies. In the present multilateral technical cooperation project (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Spain and...

Organic carbon sequestration in soils of Latin America and the Caribbean: identification of opportunities and quantification of their economic and environmental impact

"Carbon sequestration" is defined as the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere and its storage in ecological sinks, such as soil organic matter. In this case, carbon sequestration will be quantified, as changes in the soil organic carbon (SOC) pool. That can occur in response to changes in land management, such as increased use of fertilization, irrigation, or in response to changes in land use, that...

More productive and sustainable rice for Latin America

Rice is the fourth most consumed food in Latin America and contributes on average to 11% of the caloric intake per capita in the countries of the region, making it a fundamental basis for food security. Currently, there are an estimated 5.3 million hectares cultivated with rice in the Americas, mostly by small producers. The high climatic variability associated with climate change has caused less ...

HUB SmartFruit-ALC: smart solutions for family fruit systems in LAC, in the climate change scenario

Climate change is causing problems for the agricultural sector in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). In 2019 the La Araucanía region in Chile reported a water deficit of 70% during the summer period, while in Costa Rica a water deficit of up to 50% was reported in certain regions of the country. These anomalies affect the fruit quality and yield of the  small family producers who do not have...

Agtech for Climate-Smart Dairy

At present, there is an increase in the demand for animal protein in the world and it is estimated that it will grow 70% by 2050. This is an opportunity for milk production countries in LAC to supply domestic and foreign markets with dairy products. However, the increase in livestock production may have a significant environmental impact due to GHG emissions. In addition, climate change (cycles, r...

Innovation and sustainable intensification for the adaptation to climate change of family farming

By the year 2050, the agriculture sector has the challenge to increase production by 60% to feed the world. In Latin America, arid and semiarid regions (where familiar agriculture producer’s main income is extensive livestock breeding) are highly susceptible to climate change, environmental frailty and high levels of rural poverty. In these regions, research and innovation have the challenge to ...
