Digitization of small-scale agriculture

Agriculture faces several challenges. The projection of world population growth to 9.6 billion people in 2050 means an increase of around 70% in food production, while fresh water and arable land will be reduced. Much of agriculture in Latin America and the Caribbean is based on small farmers with traditional systems that will not allow, in the medium or long term, to satisfy the food demand of a ...

Sustainable Intensification of Dairy

Global population is expected to keep on increasing, which implies an increase in food demand. In this context, in order to supply this demand, increases in productivity will be required. Latin America and the Caribbean region have enough natural resources to produce milk, even to double the current production levels. However, would it be feasible to increase productivity, and at the same time to ...

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...

Pilot project: Creating basis for a Regional Early Warning System Coffee Rust (EWS)

From a socioeconomic point of view, coffee in Central America represents one of the most important items in the agricultural sector. In the region there are around 958,000 hectares of coffee plantations, with an approximate population of 2 million people, if we consider the members of producer families and other actors in the coffee value chain, who participate in the processing, exportation, roas...
