Strengthening the Competitiveness of Mango Producers in Colombia and Peru through the Comprehensive Utilization of the Fruit and Development of New Products

This project contemplates the concept of biorefinery, taking full advantage of the mango fruit, giving commercial use to fruits with defects that remain in the field, peel, and seed generated during pulping. From a scientific-technical point of view, multiple potentialities have been identified from the waste generated. The peels represent 7% to 24% of the total weight of the fruit, while the bone...

Multifunctional Bio-protectors for Postharvest Fruits

 The promotion of healthier lifestyles increases the consumption of fresh products such as tropical and Mediterranean fruits. Its consumption can expose the consumer to a higher risk of diseases since the fruits do not go through processing stages to ensure the effective elimination or inactivation of pathogenic microorganisms. Therefore, postharvest treatments are essential for the conservation ...

Tropical Agriculture 4.0: Efficient Water Management

Agricultural water use is usually called “inefficient”. Farmers irrigate without technical principles, thereby incurring deficiencies impacting crop health and final yield. In addition, this often results in overuse of the water resource. This scenario and the current climate change effects lead producers and entities responsible for managing water resources to focus efforts on improving water...

One Welfare for resilience of livestock production systems

Increasing livestock production in a sustainable manner is a challenge for regional livestock production in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). Together, Argentina, Chile and Colombia produce around 9.1 million tons of meat for global consumption, demonstrating the role of livestock in contributing to the local economy, food security, poverty reduction and sustainability. Livestock production s...

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...

Platform for the transfer and efficient use of biologicals on Latin American farms

There is an urgent need for the implementation and development of more sustainable agricultural technologies. The use of bioinoculants (biofertilizers, biopesticides and biocontrollers) based on beneficial microbes which can promote plant growth and also plant protection is a promising technology that can be improved in efficacy, adoption and commercial registration for its use. This proposal foc...

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...

Call for Proposals 2022 · ID1732MonitoreoMetano

Satellite tool to strengthen capacities for monitoring, reporting and verification of methane emissions in Latin American ecosystems.

Given the importance of quantifying methane (CH4) emissions from rice paddies in national inventories and the increasing investment in mitigation technologies, there is significant value in developing verification technologies that can be applied at regional or national scales. It is currently possible to monitor CH4 content using satellite sensors. An example of such a sensor is the Sentinel-5 P...

Feasibility of Vertical Farming Technologies in LAC

The rapid growth of the global population, which could reach 10 billion by 2050, has increased the need to produce food efficiently and effectively. Furthermore, it is estimated that during the next 50 years the effects produced by climate change, added to the main challenges of humanity in conditions of uncertainty (unemployment, pandemics, wars, etc.), will play a fundamental role in the deve...
