Online Crop Management Support Platform

Agricultural systems globally and, especially, in Latin America require increasing crop production (60%) sustainably and considering the possible effects of climate change (CC). This has driven the need for sustainable intensification of agriculture. Farmers must produce more with the same amount of land and use fewer inputs. This transition is possible and necessary for food security. However, it...

Network of resilient farms with sustainable forest management

The Gran Chaco Americano is the largest dry tropical forest region in the world, spanning across Argentina, Paraguay, and Bolivia primarily. Currently, it is a global hotspot for deforestation and land-use change for agriculture and livestock farming. This process is responsible for the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services, endangering the resilience of agricultural systems to the effects o...

Platform for the transfer and efficient use of biologicals on Latin American farms

There is an urgent need for the implementation and development of more sustainable agricultural technologies. The use of bioinoculants (biofertilizers, biopesticides and biocontrollers) based on beneficial microbes which can promote plant growth and also plant protection is a promising technology that can be improved in efficacy, adoption and commercial registration for its use. This proposal foc...

Call for Proposals 2022 · ID1732MonitoreoMetano

Satellite tool to strengthen capacities for monitoring, reporting and verification of methane emissions in Latin American ecosystems.

Given the importance of quantifying methane (CH4) emissions from rice paddies in national inventories and the increasing investment in mitigation technologies, there is significant value in developing verification technologies that can be applied at regional or national scales. It is currently possible to monitor CH4 content using satellite sensors. An example of such a sensor is the Sentinel-5 P...

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

Pastoral livestock production contributes 46% of GDP and is key to LAC's food and social security. Currently, pastoral bovine production systems 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 biomas...

Greater agricultural production with lower nitrous oxide emission

Agriculture produces 60% of nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions, 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 this multilateral technical cooperation project (Argentina, Chile, Brazil, Colombia, Spain and Uruguay), th...

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...

Gene editing for improvement in plant and animal species

Crop and animal breeding is one of the constant challenges faced by the agricultural sector when trying to achieve increases in product yield and quality. The FAO proposes that, in order to meet nutritional demand during the next 32 years, the agricultural sector must produce between 50-70% more food, forage and biofuels than a decade ago. CRISPR-based gene editing (GE) is one of the most pro...

Water management in agriculture platform 2030 - 2050

Producing more food for a growing population, the increase in competition for water resources among economic sectors, and the effects of climate change on agriculture, represent a future with greater restrictions on the availability of water in Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) countries. Faced with this complex outlook, progress in knowledge for irrigation management and technological developme...
