Agricultural systems globally and, especially, in Latin America require increasing crop production (60%) sustainably and considering the possible effects of climate change (CC). This has driven the need for sustainable intensification of agriculture. Farmers must produce more with the same amount of land and use fewer inputs. This transition is possible and necessary for food security. However, it...

Tropical Agriculture 4.0: Efficient Water Management

The water use for agriculture has been normally named “inefficient”. Farmers irrigate without technical principles, thereby incurring deficiencies impacting crop sanity and final yield. In addition, with the excess, overuse of the water resource is generated. This scenario and the current climate change effects lead producers and entities responsible for managing the water resource to focus ef...

Strengthening of the Biofortified Bean Value Chain in Native People of Latin America and the Caribbean

Approximately 53 million people suffer from malnutrition in Latin America and the Caribbean. Consequences include low birth weight and anemia. Biofortification enhances the nutrient content in crops through conventional breeding practices, addressing deficiencies in iron, zinc, and vitamin A in the human body. Biofortified crops exhibit improved agronomic characteristics and provide higher levels ...

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...

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...
