Tropical Agriculture 4.0: Efficient Water Management

The water use for agriculture has been normally named “inefficient”. Farmers irrigate without technical principles, thereby incurring deficiencies impacting crop sanity and final yield. In addition, with the excess, overuse of the water resource is generated. This scenario and the current climate change effects lead producers and entities responsible for managing the water resource to focus ef...

Sustainable livestock farming in the Amazon of Perú and Ecuador

Livestock farming is an essential activity for the livelihoods of farmer families in Peru and Ecuador, generating economic, social and nutritional benefits. In the Amazon region of these countries, both livestock and agriculture have been expanding, resulting in benefits but also environmental problems, especially when extensive systems have been implemented at the expense of deforestation and the...

Sustainable management of irrigation and fertilization in quinoa

Adequate water and fertilization management is critical to optimizing yield within limitations of climate and resource availability. Though quinoa is recommended as an efficient crop in terms of water and nitrogen use, an evaluation of responses to these limiting factors at the crop physiology level shows significant gaps between actual yields and those limited by these factors. These gaps expose ...

Nanotechnology in agricultural soil moisture management

Soil is the basis of terrestrial ecosystems and agriculture, crucial to nutrient cycling, water storage and infiltration, plant support, and microbial activity. Progressive soil degradation and desertification processes are advancing rapidly in countries of the Andean region, reducing agricultural production and negatively impacting the economy of rural families, leading to hunger and poverty. Add...

Climate change-resilient potatoes for the Andean region

This project is a consortium among leading institutions in research, development and innovation in Colombia, Ecuador and Bolivia, as well as within the potato production sector in the Andean region. Its main goal is to reduce vulnerability to climate change, incorporating new families and advanced potato clones with early maturity and resilience to drought. Participatory genetic improvement progra...

Nanofertilizers in soils and nitrous oxide emissions

Inefficienct nutrient use in fertilization processes has led to soil degradation, nutrient leaching, water pollution, high greenhouse gas emissions, and poor production models. Nano-fertilizers are considered an alternative with great potential. In this project, formulations of nano-fertilizers based on titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and zeolite will be synthesized and characterized. The effect of ...

Bioprocess for reducing the solubility of rhizospheric cadmium (Cd)

Successful marketing of Latin American Fine Aroma National cocoa is hampered by high cadmium (Cd) content in the beans. This project 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. Activities will be implemented via technical cooperation wi...

Strengthening capacities for the prevention and management of Fusarium wilt in Latin America and the Caribbean

Musaceae (plantain and banana) are considered one of the most popular fruits in the world and are among the top ten food products. Bananas are an export item of great importance for Latin America and the Caribbean and, therefore, a fundamental pillar of the economy. The cultivation of plantain is also the basis of the daily diet of the population and the generation and diversification of income. A...

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...
