Innovations for reduced methane emissions in ruminants

There is pressure to reduce the impact that livestock production systems have on the environment, accompanied by an increasing global demand for meat. However, the sustainability of these production systems in LAC is fragile due to a low uptake of technological innovations for identifying opportunities to increase production sustainably. Currently, there are limitations in evaluating key parameter...

Biological products for creating resilience to climate change

Global agricultural production faces challenges from climate change, drought, nutrient availability, pests and diseases. Biological products can reduce the use of agrochemicals and help improve productivity by minimizing the environmental risks of toxic waste and water pollution. Entomopathogenic fungi (HEP), phytopathogenic antagonists (PAH) and arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (HFMA) have been studi...

Nanotechnology in agricultural soil moisture management

Soil is the basis of terrestrial ecosystems and agriculture, crucial to nutrient cycling, water storage and infiltration, plant support, and microbial activity. Progressive soil degradation and desertification processes are advancing rapidly in countries of the Andean region, reducing agricultural production and negatively impacting the economy of rural families, leading to hunger and poverty. Add...

Greater agricultural production with lower nitrous oxide emission

Agriculture produces 60% of nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, 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 this multilateral technical cooperation project (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Spain and Uruguay), th...

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. These changes can occur in response to changes in land management, such as increased use of fertilization, irrigation, or in response to changes in land u...

More productive and sustainable rice for Latin America

Rice is the fourth most consumed food in Latin America and on average contributes 11% of the caloric intake per capita in the region, making it fundamental 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 decreased water availability, in turn af...

Agtech for Climate-Smart Dairy

There is currently an increase in global demand for animal protein that is estimated to grow 70% by 2050. This is an opportunity for milk-producing countries in LAC to supply domestic and foreign markets with dairy products. However, an increase in livestock production may have a significant environmental impact due to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In addition, climate change (cycles, rainfall p...
