Sustainable control of the Huanglongbing vector (HLB) in Family Farming (AF) in Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia

HLB (Huanglongbing) is the most destructive citrus disease in the world caused by a bacterium (Candidatus Liberibacter spp). The disease dispersal dynamics respond to the transfer of diseased plant material and the presence of the vector (Diaphorina citri) as a dissemination agent. Since there is no cure yet, prevention is based on the use of healthy material, constant monitoring of crops and vect...

Sustainable Intensification in Dairy

Within human activities, agricultural activity is the one that consumes most of the available fresh water. Particularly, the dairy uses large volumes of water, directly and indirectly; therefore, it is important to estimate the use of water as an indicator of the long-term sustainability of the dairy. Medium-term projections show that global demand for dairy products will be greater than the growt...

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...

Mechanisms and Climate Technology Transfer Networks in Latin America and the Caribbean

Climate change will affect large areas of Latin America and the Caribbean (LAC), mainly due to rising temperatures, variations in rainfall intensity and frequency, which will have an effect on productivity and the appearance of new pests and diseases. The most affected would be family farmers, who are the majority. On the other hand, it is estimated that in the next 30 years, the demand for food w...
