Bioprocess for reducing the solubility of rhizospheric cadmium (Cd)

Successful marketing of Latin American Fine Aroma National cocoa is hampered by high cadmium (Cd) content in the beans. This project 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. Activities will be implemented via technical cooperation wi...

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...

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

By the year 2050, the agriculture sector faces the challenge of increasing production by 60% to meet global food demand. In Latin America, arid and semiarid regions (where family farmers’ main income is extensive livestock breeding) are highly susceptible to climate change, environmental frailty and experience high levels of rural poverty. In these regions, research and innovation can increase p...

Strengthening Regional Networks on Climate Technologies for the Agricultural Sector in Latin America and the Caribbean

Climate change will affect large areas of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), mainly due to rising temperatures, variations in rainfall intensity and frequency, effecting productivity and the emergence of new pests and diseases. Family farmers are most vulnerable to these effects. Furthermore, it is estimated that food demand will increase over the next 30 years due to population growth, income...

Sustainable Intensification of Dairy

Global population is expected to continue increasing, implying an increase in food demand. In order to supply this demand, increases in productivity will be required.Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) have ample natural resources for dairy production, enough even to double current production levels. However, would it be feasible to increase productivity, and at the same time to improve family...

Sustainable Intensification in Dairy

Agricultural activity consumes most available fresh water out of all human activities. In particular, dairy production uses large volumes of water, directly and indirectly. Therefore, it is important to estimate water use as an indicator of the long-term sustainability of dairy production. Medium-term projections show that global demand for dairy products will be greater than the growth in supply ...

Climate Technology Transfer Mechanisms and Networks in Latin America and the Caribbean

Climate change will affect large areas of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), mainly due to rising temperatures, variations in rainfall intensity and frequency, which will have an effect on productivity and the appearance of new pests and diseases. Those most affected will be family farmers, who represent the majority of producers. On the other hand, it is estimated that in the next 30 years th...

Dissemination of Successful Technological Innovations in Banana, for Eco-Efficient Crop Management in Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela

Plantain and banana are traditionally propagated by vegetative cloning, that is, by corms or hills. This type of propagation allows staggered multiplication of crops and reuse of the seed between one harvest and another, but the use of planting material affected by phytopathogens is the main source of disease spread. Among the most relevant are vascular wilt or Moko (caused by Ralstonia solanacear...

Foundations for the development of biological and ethological control strategies of the fruit borer Neoleucinodes elegantalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae) in exotic Andean solanaceae fruits.

The demand for solanaceae fruits such as tree tomato (Solanum betaceum) and lulo or naranjilla (Solanum quitoense) has increased, especially for fresh consumption. The exclusive flavor of these fruits also attracts attention in international markets such as Japan, the United States and Europe. In Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador, the tomato fruit borer, N. elegantalis (Lepidoptera: Crambidae), is t...
