The adequate management of water and fertilization is critical to optimize yield, within the limits established by the climate and the availability of resources. Even though quinoa is recommended as an efficient crop in terms of its use of water and nitrogen an evaluation of responses to these variables at the crop physiology level shows significant gaps between actual yields and those limited by...

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...

Reducing bioprocess of the solubility rhizospheric Cd

Successful marketing of Latin-American Fine Aroma National cocoa is hampered by high cadmium (Cd) content in the beans. For this, we will formulate an innovative, highly efficient and climatically intelligent bioprocess to reduce the solubility of Cd in the rhizosphere of cocoa plants with a protocol suitable for transfer to cocoa farms. The bioprocess will involve: (a) isolation of a soil fungi c...

Higher agricultural production with lower nitrous oxide emission

Agriculture produces 60% of the emission of nitrous oxide (N2O), 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 the present multilateral technical cooperation project (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Spain and...

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...

Gene editing for improvement in plant and animal species

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

Water management in agriculture platform 2030 - 2050

Producing more food for a growing population, the increase in competition for the use of water resources among economic sectors, as well as the effects of climate change on agriculture, represent a future with greater restrictions on the availability of water in the Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC) countries. Faced with this complex panorama, the notable advances in knowledge for irrigation ...

Regional control platform for bovine leukosis

Bovine leukosis is identified as one of the silent affections that affects the health, productivity, and therefore, the economic performance of herds. Its asymptomatic presentation in 90% of the cases and consequently, little identified and valued in terms of productive losses. The growing demand for diagnosis, the appearance of tumors, sudden deaths as a consequence of them, and the absence of of...

Bovine productivity in the South American Chaco region

In recent decades there has been a rapid expansion and intensification of agricultural production in the South American Chaco region. However, most livestock producers still maintain very low levels of productivity. A valid indicator to measure this low productivity is the low annual weaning rate (calves per cow per year), which is below 50%. The main problems that explain this low productivity ar...
