The low efficiency in the use of nutrients in the fertilization processes has led to soil degradation, nutrient leaching, water pollution, high greenhouse gas emissions, and poor production models. Accordingly, nano-fertilizers are considered as one of the alternatives with great potential. In this project, formulations of nano-fertilizers based on titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and zeolite will be...

AhoRa: Application for family farming of musaceae

Latin America and the Caribbean provide around 80% of all banana and plantain sales in the world, which represents more than 16 million tons of fruit. Much of the production is in the hands of small farmers whose income barely allows them to support the production of their small farms. The sustainability of production is at risk in the face of an increasing frequency of climatic events such as col...
