Bioinputs Development for Sustainable Production of Vegetables with Small Farmers for Food Sovereignty in the Andes

The Andean region is characterized by a great diversity of ecosystems with different climatic and geomorphological conditions that have generated great genetic diversity. These ecosystems are being degraded by the excessive use of agrochemicals, creating alterations to the environment and human health. The scarcity of resources of the Andean producers, the high levels of poverty (90 to 95%) and th...

Replacing Insecticides in Potato Cultivation: Improvement in Inter-Institutional Coordination for the Dissemination and Impact Analysis of a New Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in the Andes of Peru

Potato is the main food of the Andean settlers. The Andean weevil (Premnotrypes spp.) and potato moths (Phthorimaea operculella, Symmetrischema tangolias, Tecia solanivora) are the key pests that limit production and harvest quality in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. To contribute to the solution of the problem, CIP and its collaborators within the framework of the project financed by FONTAGRO: CGIAR #...

Identification and Selection of Tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum mill) Cultivars Tolerant of the Virosis Complex Transmitted by Bemisia tabaci (genn.) (Aleyrodidae) in Central America

Tomato cultivation has great relevance in Central America, it is planted by some 53,000 small (0.5 ha) and medium (up to 5 ha) scale producers on about 12,000 ha. They achieve low yields that oscillate between 9 and 27 t / ha. The high incidence of Begomoviruses, transmitted by the whitefly (Bemicia tabaci) negatively affects fruit yields and quality, which is presumed to be linked to the limited ...

Development and Application of Ecological Practices in Pest Management to Increase the Sustainable Production of Potatoes for Low-Income Farmers in the Andean Regions of Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru

The potato is the main food of the Andean settlers. The Andean weevil (Premnotrypes spp.) and potato moths (Phthorimaea operculella, Symmetrischema tangolias, Tecia solanivora) are the key pests that limit production and harvest quality in Bolivia, Ecuador and Peru. Without control, the losses of these pests can reach more than 50% during the field phase, and up to 80% during the storage phase. Po...

Management of the mite-fungi-bacteria complex, a new challenge for Central American rice growers

Despite its social and nutritional importance and research and development efforts, rice in Central America shows low productivity and can hardly compete with yields achieved in the Southern Cone or North America. If we add phytosanitary threats to the above, the situation becomes more difficult. In this framework, the mite-fungus-bacteria (CAHB) complex became a threat to the sustainable product...

Reducing the Use and Development of Resistance to Pesticides of Rice and Beans Cultivation in Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador

The indiscriminate use of insecticides and fungicides in rice and beans in the Andean zone has become a serious problem that affects the environment, the health of producers and consumers. Its excessive use has caused resistance to fungicides and insecticides to the main pathogens and insects that affect these crops. Most of the pesticides used are category I (extremely dangerous) and are applied ...
