More productive and sustainable rice for Latin America

Rice is the fourth most consumed food in Latin America and contributes on average to 11% of the caloric intake per capita in the countries of the region, making it a fundamental basis for food security. Currently, there are an estimated 5.3 million hectares cultivated with rice in the Americas, mostly by small producers. The high climatic variability associated with climate change has caused less ...

HUB SmartFruit-ALC: smart solutions for family fruit systems in LAC, in the climate change scenario

Climate change is causing problems for the agricultural sector in Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC). In 2019 the La Araucanía region in Chile reported a water deficit of 70% during the summer period, while in Costa Rica a water deficit of up to 50% was reported in certain regions of the country. These anomalies affect the fruit quality and yield of the  small family producers who do not have...

Digitization of small-scale agriculture

Agriculture faces several challenges. The projection of world population growth to 9.6 billion people in 2050 means an increase of around 70% in food production, while fresh water and arable land will be reduced. Much of agriculture in Latin America and the Caribbean is based on small farmers with traditional systems that will not allow, in the medium or long term, to satisfy the food demand of a ...

New technologies to increase water use efficiency in agriculture in LAC by 2030

One of the main challenges of the 21st century is feeding a growing population with fewer natural resources. Projections show that to feed a world population of 9 billion people in 2050 it would be necessary to increase food production by 70%. The main resource for food production is water. Agriculture, mainly irrigated agriculture, is the sector with the greatest extraction and use of water on th...

Implementation of an early warning system for sustainable preventive management of potato late blight (Phytophthora infestans), as an adaptation measure against the variability of climate change in Latin America

Potato is a major crop in Latin America and is the main food in small farming, it is native to America as well as the causal agent of Late Blight (LB), P. infestans. Today, LB is considered a re-emerging disease in this crop, due to pathogen variability and climate instability that favors its presence and dispersion, with a high incidence and severity. Farmers, therefore, use pesticides excessivel...

Sustainable Intensification of Dairy

Global population is expected to keep on increasing, which implies an increase in food demand. In this context, in order to supply this demand, increases in productivity will be required. Latin America and the Caribbean region have enough natural resources to produce milk, even to double the current production levels. However, would it be feasible to increase productivity, and at the same time to ...

Biointensive Cultive for Rural Families in the Dry Corridor

The Central American Dry Corridor is one of the regions with the greatest vulnerability to the effects of climate change worldwide, which has already meant longer dry periods that intensify when the El Niño phenomenon is present, reducing rainfall by 40% and 60%, as has happened during 2014 and 2015. All this translates into high levels of food insecurity in rural areas caused by insufficient and...
