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...

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...

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 have very low productivity levels . A valid indicator of this productivity is the low annual weaning rate (calves per cow per year), which is below 50%. Low productivity can be explained by poor availability and planning of fo...

Improving the yield of potatoes and other Andean tubers - Root to Food

Family agriculture is a key productive sector to eradicate hunger and propose changes toward more sustainable agricultural systems. In Latin America, 80% of farms belong to family farming, including more than 60 million people, making it the main source of agricultural and rural employment. Within family farming in the high Andean regions, Andean tubers such as potatoes (Solanum tuberosum), smooth...

Sustainable control of the Huanglongbing vector (HLB) in Family Farming (AF) in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia

HLB (Huanglongbing) is the most destructive citrus disease in the world, caused by a bacterium (Candidatus Liberibacter spp). The disease dispersal dynamics respond to the transfer of diseased plant material and the presence of the vector (Diaphorina citri) as a dissemination agent. Since there is no cure yet, prevention is based on the use of healthy material, constant monitoring of crops and vec...
