Satellite monitoring of quantity and quality of available biomass in pastoral livestock systems

Pastoral livestock contributes 46% of GDP and is key to LAC's food and social security. Currently, pastoral systems for bovine production face the challenge of increasing their profitability by reducing their environmental impact, since high costs and a growing concern about their contribution to global warming threaten their development. Knowing the quantity and quality of available biomass is ke...

Organic carbon sequestration in soils of Latin America and the Caribbean: identification of opportunities and quantification of their economic and environmental impact

"Carbon sequestration" is defined as the removal of CO2 from the atmosphere and its storage in ecological sinks, such as soil organic matter. In this case, carbon sequestration will be quantified, as changes in the soil organic carbon (SOC) pool. That can occur in response to changes in land management, such as increased use of fertilization, irrigation, or in response to changes in land use, that...

Basis for the Development of a Evaluation and Monitoring Projects Platform

Since the mid-1950s, studies have been carried out to measure the impact of agricultural research and innovation, particularly the economic impact of investment. Agriculture is in this sense the economic activity that concentrates a large part of the economic impact analysis of R&D investment. It must be considered that due to the uncertainty inherent in the generation of a technology in the a...

Improving Animal Production Systems with Emphasis on Dairy Farming in the Andean Region within the Context of Climate Change

This project aimed to improve methane (CH4) and nitrous oxide (N2O) emissions quantification techniques. Furthermore, it intended to generate strategies to help mitigate these emissions in dual-purpose livestock in the Andean Region. This project was structured in five components. The first one consisted of biophysical and socioeconomic characterization of dairy production sites. In a second one, ...

Developing Competitive Livestock Production Systems with Low Emissions of Greenhouse Gases in Central America

Farms with lower intensification only have grazing systems and generate more CH4 emissions than higher intensified farms. In contrast, farms with greater intensification systems have feeding strategies such as supplementing lactating cows with commercial concentrates, minerals, and silages. Furthermore, they tend to implement more management strategies such as pasture management plans, soil analys...

Climate Change and Livestock: Quantification and Mitigation Options for Methane and Nitrous Oxide Emissions of Bovine Origin under Grazing Conditions

Global warming caused by greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) is a major environmental concern. Countries that have ratified the Kyoto Protocol are required to submitt periodic reports to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) about their GHG emissions and climate change adaptation and mitigation programs. The countries involved in the project carry out their emission inventories based on ...
