Gene editing for improvement in plant and animal species

The improvement of crops and animals is one of the permanent challenges in the agricultural sector for the increase of the yield and / or the quality of the products. FAO argues that, to meet food demand in the next 32 years, agriculture must produce between 50 and 70% more food, fodder and biofuel than it did a decade ago. The CRISPR-based gene edition (EG) is one of the new biotechnologies with ...

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...
