Promote the Resilience of Production Systems to Reduce the Vulnerability of Small Farmers Families through the Revaluation of the Genus Lupinus Neglected Crops

The high Andes of Bolivia and Ecuador, and the Araucania in Southern Chile are highly vulnerable to climate change, show high poverty incidence, and have few economic opportunities. Legumes of the genus Lupinus show high adaptation capacity to adverse weather and soil conditions. In Bolivia and Ecuador the bitter Lupinus (Lupinus mutabilis) prevail, while in Chile, both bitter and sweet (L. albus,...

Strengthening Small Producers of Organic Banana: Integration of Actors, Sustainable Pest Management and Soil Health Strategies

Organic banana production is a key activity for more than 10,000 families, who cultivate more than 30,000 hectares of this crop in Ecuador, Peru and the Dominican Republic. The crop generates weekly income, employs family and local labor, and has relatively low maintenance costs. However, growers are under pressure from pest outbreaks, costly supplies, certification requirements, and extreme weath...

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 #...

Dissemination of Successful Technological Innovations in Banana, for Eco-Efficient Crop Management in Colombia, Ecuador and Venezuela

Plantain and banana are traditionally propagated by vegetative cloning, that is, by corms or hills. This type of propagation allows staggered multiplication of crops and reuse of the seed between one harvest and another, but the use of planting material affected by phytopathogens is the main source of disease spread. Among the most relevant are vascular wilt or Moko (caused by Ralstonia solanacear...
