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...

Gene editing for genetic improvement in plant and animal species

VIEW WORKSHOP REPORTDuring the 22nd annual meeting of the FONTARGO (Regional Fund for Agricultural Technology) board of directors, held on the 4th and 5th of October, 2018, in Guayaquil, Ecuador, a need for a regional platform for genome editing in the agricultural sector was expressed. As a result, an initiative on gene editing was proposed to strengthen programs of plant and animal genetic impro...

Mitigate the effect of high temperatures on maize productivity

Maize is one of the main sources of food for a high proportion of the region's population. Climate change will cause increases in temperatures that can negatively affect maize productivity in Latin America. Yield sensitivity to temperature (alone or associated with water or nutrient stress) is generally much higher if stress occurs during the period around flowering (which determines the number of...

Increasing Competitiveness of Potato and Wheat Production Systems in South America to Climate Change

Climate change is generating increases in average temperatures, variations in rainfall and more frequent extreme weather events. Its effects could seriously impact traditional agriculture, particularly small and medium-sized farms that depend on rainfed production. Water stress during flowering, pollination, and grain filling is harmful in wheat, as well as it affects tuberization or tuber filling...

Development and Evaluation of Lycopersiconspp. Genetic Resources for Use in Genetic Improvement of Solanaceae Against Biotic and Abiotic Stress

Tomato is one of the most popular vegetables worldwide. South America constitutes the main center of origin of the cultivated tomato and of various wild species. Different characteristics have been obtained from wild species that have been transferred to cultivated tomato varieties. However, wild tomato germplasm has generally been little used by countries that constitute their center of origin, i...

Molecular marker-assisted selection for cold tolerance of rice in the southern cone of Latin America; a strategy to face climatic instability

About 1.4 million hectares of rice are cultivated in the Southern Cone of Latin America and are potentially affected by low temperatures. In Rio Grande do Sul, more than a million ha are planted and 60% of the total Brazilian production is produced (7 million tons). Approximately 200,000 ha are planted in Uruguay (1.4 million tons) and a similar area in Argentina (1.2 million tons). The region req...

Development and implementation of advanced genomic tools to contribute to the adaptation of coffee to climate change

Coffee cultivation is of strategic importance for most of the member countries of FONTAGRO. It is one of the main agricultural products for export and foreign exchange generation in the region. Latin America is the main producer in the world of Coffea arabica, a highly appreciated species in the world market for its best quality and which represents 70% of the market. Climate change is expected to...

Innovation network for research and development: towards efficient dissemination and pro-poor impact mechanisms based on new potato varieties in the Andean region

The Andean countries have made progress in potato breeding, but innovations are still needed for low-income people in marginal high-Andean areas. The gap is a consequence of the weak articulation of research systems with development agents and grassroots organizations, the incompatibility between formal seed systems and peasant ("informal") systems, the limited systematization and replication of e...

Identification and Use of Durable Resistance to Barley Diseases in Latin America

Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) is a crop of great economic importance in Latin America, especially as a food source in the Andean region (smallholder agriculture) and as a value chain for malted barley in the Atlantic plains (agriculture more business). Diseases are the main limiting factor in cultivation, significantly affecting yields. The traditional form of control has been through the use of che...
