Satellite monitoring of quantity and quality of available biomass in pastoral livestock systems

Pastoral livestock contributes 46% of GDP and is key to LAC's food and social security. Currently, pastoral systems for bovine production face the challenge of increasing their profitability by reducing their environmental impact, since high costs and a growing concern about their contribution to global warming threaten their development. Knowing the quantity and quality of available biomass is ke...

Organic carbon sequestration in soils of Latin America and the Caribbean: identification of opportunities and quantification of their economic and environmental impact

"Carbon sequestration" is defined as the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere and its storage in ecological sinks, such as soil organic matter. In this case, carbon sequestration will be quantified, as changes in the soil organic carbon (SOC) pool. That can occur in response to changes in land management, such as increased use of fertilization, irrigation, or in response to changes in land use, that...

HUB SmartFruit-ALC: smart solutions for family fruit systems in LAC, in the climate change scenario

Climate change is causing problems for the agricultural sector in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). In 2019 the La Araucanía region in Chile reported a water deficit of 70% during the summer period, while in Costa Rica a water deficit of up to 50% was reported in certain regions of the country. These anomalies affect the fruit quality and yield of the  small family producers who do not have...

Innovation for pasture management

Harvested Forage in the production systems of Latin America and the Caribbean is very low in relation to their potential. In tropical areas, such as Costa Rica, the production of dry matter (DM) of the main forage species ranges between 10 and 25 t DM / ha / year, but on average the animals consume less than 45 % of the available pasture. In temperate zones, such as Uruguay, forage production on a...

Agtech for Climate-Smart Dairy

At present, there is an increase in the demand for animal protein in the world and it is estimated that it will grow 70% by 2050. This is an opportunity for milk production countries in LAC to supply domestic and foreign markets with dairy products. However, the increase in livestock production may have a significant environmental impact due to GHG emissions. In addition, climate change (cycles, r...

Multi-agency cocoa platform for Latin America and the Caribbean “Cocoa 2030-2050”

Cocoa is one of the main commodities traded in the world for the production of food, beverages and other products. Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) countries have a long history or cacao production linked to millions of farmers and is key to food security. LAC's ability to supply the fine cocoa market is unquestionable, however, the high concentrations of cadmium (Cd) in cocoa beans has become a ...

Carbon Sequestration

Several global initiatives indicate that carbon sequestration (C) in soil organic matter dedicated to agriculture is a viable option to mitigate the emission of greenhouse gases (GHG) and to increase the resilience of these systems to climate change. In particular, the '4 per mille Soils for Food Security and Climate' initiative launched at COP21 is aimed at increasing the global stock of C in the...

2030/2050 Cocoa

Cocoa (Theobroma cacao L) is one of the main “commodities” marketed in the world as a raw material for the production of food, beverages and other industrial products. In Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), this crop has a historical history linked to millions of family producers in the Andean Region, Central America, the Caribbean and South (Brazil). This crop is key to food security, sinc...
