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...

Use of legumes in livestock systems

Countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay are large producers and exporters of meat under direct grazing of natural fields and planted pastures, totaling almost 300 million head of cattle. Most of the land dedicated to this low-productivity pastoral livestock is found in marginal areas for agriculture, with severe limitations of fertility and/or acidity/alkalinity and/or wat...

Sustainable Intensification in Dairy

Within human activities, agricultural activity is the one that consumes most of the available fresh water. Particularly, the dairy uses large volumes of water, directly and indirectly; therefore, it is important to estimate the use of water as an indicator of the long-term sustainability of the dairy. Medium-term projections show that global demand for dairy products will be greater than the growt...

Bioinputs Development for Sustainable Production of Vegetables with Small Farmers for Food Sovereignty in the Andes

The Andean region is characterized by a great diversity of ecosystems with different climatic and geomorphological conditions that have generated great genetic diversity. These ecosystems are being degraded by the excessive use of agrochemicals, creating alterations to the environment and human health. The scarcity of resources of the Andean producers, the high levels of poverty (90 to 95%) and th...

Replacing Insecticides in Potato Cultivation: Improvement in Inter-Institutional Coordination for the Dissemination and Impact Analysis of a New Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the Andes of Peru

Potato is the main food of the Andean settlers. The Andean weevil (Premnotrypes spp.) and potato moths (Phthorimaea operculella, Symmetrischema tangolias, Tecia solanivora) are the key pests that limit production and harvest quality in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. To contribute to the solution of the problem, CIP and its collaborators within the framework of the project financed by FONTAGRO: CGIAR #...
