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 ...

Bovine productivity in the South American Chaco region

Latin America is considered the largest exporter of beef in the world. About 70 % of the region's grazing area is in the process of environmental degradation. Among the regions most affected by traditional livestock is the South American Chaco, a wide plain with xerophytic forests and subtropical grasslands, which occupies some 140 million hectares in Bolivia, Paraguay and Argentina. Therefore, it...

Sustainable control of the Huanglongbing vector (HLB) in Family Farming (AF) in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia

HLB (Huanglongbing) is the most destructive citrus disease in the world caused by a bacterium (Candidatus Liberibacter spp). The disease dispersal dynamics respond to the transfer of diseased plant material and the presence of the vector (Diaphorina citri) as a dissemination agent. Since there is no cure yet, prevention is based on the use of healthy material, constant monitoring of crops and vect...

Sustainable intensification of legume-based livestock systems: Latin America and Caribbean cooperation platform

This project brings together eight countries that are characterized by having an important livestock activity, both for meat and milk production. Altogether, they concentrate about 400 million cattle heads, which represents more than 20% of world stock.Livestock is mostly carried out under direct grazing, in markedly different agroecosystems, with a high diversity of forage resources. However, the...

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, which will have an effect on productivity and the appearance of new pests and diseases. The most affected would be family farmers, who are the majority. On the other hand, it is estimated that in the next 30 years, the demand for food w...

Innovation Network for Rural Development of the Great American Chaco in the Context of Climate Change

The Gran Chaco Americano covers an area of approximately 1,014,000 km2, and represents the second largest forested region in Latin America after the Amazon rainforest. The impact caused by the increase in extreme weather events affects families, whose subsistence largely depends on the resources from the native forest. The objective of The Innovation Network for a Climate-Resilient Gran Chaco is t...

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 ...

FONTAGRO - PROADAPT Articulation: Building Resilience in the Gran Chaco Americano

The Gran Chaco Americano represents the second largest forest region in Latin America after the Amazon jungle and is shared between Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and a small part of Brazil. The climatic vulnerability studies of the Gran Chaco foresee significant impacts in the next three decades, particularly due to the greater risk of droughts and floods according to the different areas and the in...

Traditional Varietal Seeds Offering Centers: A Model for Strengthening Informal Seed System and Increase Competitiveness of Family Agriculture

In Latin America, 80-90 % of producers belong to the Family Agriculture (FA) sector. This group occupies between 14 to 70 % of the agricultural area of the countries of Latin America and contributes 27-67 % to agricultural GDP. For some species of economic importance, between 50 to 90 % of crop production is carried out on the basis of traditional seeds through self-production or through transacti...
