Technological Innovations to Build Resilient Livelihoods in the Dry Corridor Peasant Families

Lately, the Central American region has been affected by the consequences of global warming, with the greatest impact manifesting in the dry corridor of Nicaragua and Honduras where cyclical droughts and rain patterns with characteristics very similar to the El Niño phenomenon occur. These climatic conditions have affected levels of productivity and environmental and social sustainability of a po...

Expanding the Agricultural Frontier of the Potato to Lessen the Effects of Climate Change (CLIPAPA)

The potato plays a key role in global nutrition, due to its high productivity and high nutritional value. One of the effects of climate change and variability is the increase in pests and diseases, which represents a great threat to the sustainability of agriculture and food security. The potato is very sensitive to abiotic stresses causing significant yield reductions and frost can destroy the cr...

Technological Innovations in Integrated Management of Frog Skin in Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz)

Cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz) is a staple in the diet of 17.8 million people worldwide. In addition to constituting an industrial crop with high potential that generates income for small and medium-scale farmers, it contributes to the social development of the regions where it is grown. Cassava is highly adapted to marginal growth conditions, a relevant aspect for farmers who must face unpred...

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...

Using Potato Genetic Diversity to Address Adaptation to Climate Change

The Andean region is the center of origin of the potato. Ancestrally, its diversity has been the basis of feeding and survival strategies of thousands of peasant communities to face the climatic difficulties of mountain agriculture, such as frost, hail and droughts. These adverse events, however, have become more recurrent, random and severe in recent years as a result of changes in climate, causi...

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...

Generation and validation of drought tolerant maize varieties as a means of stabilizing productivity and reducing mycotoxin damage as a consequence of climate change

Maize is a key crop in the lower tropics of Latin America, providing up to 40% of protein and 50% of calories in the diets of some Central American countries. There are more than 4.0 million hectares planted with maize in Central America, Colombia, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador and Bolivia, with an average yield of approximately 2.5 t / ha. Climate change will cause increases in temperatures, variation...
