Greater agricultural production with lower nitrous oxide emission

Agriculture produces 60% of nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, one of the three main greenhouse gases responsible for global warming. Paradoxically, agriculture is extremely sensitive to climate change, a fact that generates the need to promote climate-smart technological innovation policies. In this multilateral technical cooperation project (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Spain and Uruguay), th...

Gene editing for improvement in plant and animal species

Crop and animal breeding is one of the constant challenges faced by the agricultural sector when trying to achieve increases in product yield and quality. The FAO proposes that, in order to meet nutritional demand during the next 32 years, the agricultural sector must produce between 50-70% more food, forage and biofuels than a decade ago. CRISPR-based gene editing (GE) is one of the most pro...

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 ...

Sustainable intensification of livestock systems with legumes: Latin America and Caribbean cooperation platform

This project brings together eight countries characterized by their high livestock activity for meat and dairy production. They hold an estimated 400 million heads of cattle, representing more than 20% of global stock. Livestock is produced primarily under direct grazing, in different agroecosystems, with a high diversity of forage resources. Nevertheless, these countries present noticeable simil...

Use of legumes in livestock systems

Countries such as Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay and Uruguay are large producers and exporters of meat, primarily relying on direct grazing of natural fields and planted pastures with a total of almost 300 million head of cattle. The majority of land dedicated to this low-productivity pastoral livestock is found in marginal areas for agriculture, characterized by severe limitations in fertilit...

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 ...

Variability and Climate Change in the Expansion of the Agricultural Frontier in the Southern Cone: Technological and Political Strategies to Reduce Vulnerabilities

The Southern Cone of Latin America is one of the main food-producing regions of the world. Agricultural expansion in the last 50 years has been very consistent and significant, having increased the cultivation area of rain-fed grains by 65 million hectares, yields at a rate of 3.1% per year and production by 275 million tons. In general, agriculture expands on soils with less agricultural aptitude...

Molecular marker-assisted selection for cold tolerance of rice in the southern cone of Latin America; a strategy to face climatic instability

About 1.4 million hectares of rice are cultivated in the Southern Cone of Latin America and are potentially affected by low temperatures. In Rio Grande do Sul, more than a million ha are planted and 60% of the total Brazilian production is produced (7 million tons). Approximately 200,000 ha are planted in Uruguay (1.4 million tons) and a similar area in Argentina (1.2 million tons). The region req...
