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 ...

The adequate management of water and fertilization is critical to optimize yield, within the limits established by the climate and the availability of resources. Even though quinoa is recommended as an efficient crop in terms of its use of water and nitrogen an evaluation of responses to these variables at the crop physiology level shows significant gaps between actual yields and those limited by...

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 ...

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...

Water management in agriculture platform 2030 - 2050

Producing more food for a growing population, the increase in competition for the use of water resources among economic sectors, as well as the effects of climate change on agriculture, represent a future with greater restrictions on the availability of water in the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) countries. Faced with this complex panorama, the notable advances in knowledge for irrigation ...

Improving the yield of potatoes and other Andean tubers - Root to Food

Family agriculture is a key productive sector to eradicate hunger and propose changes towards more sustainable agricultural systems. In Latin America, 80% of farms belong to family farming, including more than 60 million people, making it the main source of agricultural and rural employment. Within family farming in the high Andean regions, Andean tubers such as potatoes (Solanum tuberosum), smoot...

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...

°AHoRa: Application for family farming of musaceae

Latin America and the Caribbean provide around 80% of all banana and plantain sales in the world, which represents more than 16 million tons of fruit. Much of the production is in the hands of small farmers whose income barely allows them to support the production of their small farms. The sustainability of production is at risk in the face of an increasing frequency of climatic events such as col...

Innovation for pasture management

Harvested Forage in the production systems of Latin America and the Caribbean is very low in relation to their potential. In tropical areas, such as Costa Rica, the production of dry matter (DM) of the main forage species ranges between 10 and 25 t DM / ha / year, but on average the animals consume less than 45 % of the available pasture. In temperate zones, such as Uruguay, forage production on a...
