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. These changes can occur in response to changes in land management, such as increased use of fertilization, irrigation, or in response to changes in land u...

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 small family producers who do not have the t...

Innovation for pasture management

Forage harvest levels in Latin American and Caribbean production systems are very low in relation to their potential. In tropical zones, such as Costa Rica, dry matter (DM) production of the main forage species ranges between 10 and 25 t DM/ha/year, but on average animals consume less than 45% of the available pasture. In temperate zones, as in Uruguay, forage production averages 4.5 t DM/ha/year,...
