    The Latin America-Caribbean (LAC) region has the potential to pursue a sustainable expansion of livestock production and capitalise on the growing global demand for dairy and beef products. However, it is This study ...
  • Diversity and productive potential of timber trees in cocoa agroforestry systems in Alta Verapaz, Guatemala 

    Villanueva-González, Carlos; Ruiz-Chután, José; Polesny, Zbynek; Kalousova, Marie; Lojka, Bohdan; Villanueva, Cristóbal (Revista de la Facultad de Agronomía de la Universidad del Zulia, 2024-02-27)
    Timber production in agroforestry systems can improve environmental and economic sustainability, especially for families living in rural areas. Despite its importance in Guatemala, little is known about ...
  • A combination of conserved and diverged responses underlies Theobroma cacao’s defense response to Phytophthora palmivora 

    Winters, Noah P; Wafula, Eric K; Knollenberg, Benjamin J; Leandro-Muñoz, Mariela E (BMC Biology, 2024)
    Plants have complex and dynamic immune systems that have evolved to resist pathogens. Humans have worked to enhance these defenses in crops through breeding. However, many crops harbor only a fraction of the genetic diversity ...
  • Agroforestry at work 

    Somarriba, Eduardo; Chomba, Susan; Ganz, David; Garrity, Dennis; Scherr, Sara; Torquebiau, Emmanuel; Tropenbos Foundation, Wageningen (Países Bajos) (2024)
    This issue contextualizes agroforestry in four introductory articles in terms of economic viability and resilience, gender inclusiveness, interactions with climate change and biodiversity and barriers to adoption. We then ...
  • Risk analysis and cacao pod survivorship curves to improve yield forecasting methods 

    Orozco-Aguilar, Luis; López Sampson, Arlene; Barboza, Luis A.; Borda, María José; Leandro Muñoz, Mariela E; Bordeaux, Melanie; Cerda, Rolando H; Ayestas Villega, Eusebio; Somarriba, Eduardo (Frontiers, 2024-03-22)
    Cocoa attainable yields are affected by a complex of pests and diseases in a particular agro-environment. Estimation of yield loss is critical for agronomic and economic decision-making at the farm level. For over 15 months, ...
  • Interactions between climate, shade canopy characteristics and cocoa production in Colombia 

    Casanoves, Fernando; Hernández-Nuñez, Héctor Eduardo; Suárez, Juan Carlos; Andrade, Hernán J; Sánchez Acosta, José Ramiro; Duarte Núñez, Ramiro; Gutiérrez, David Ricardo; Gutiérrez, Gustavo Adolfo; Gutiérrez-Montes, Isabel (Frontiers, 2024-02-09)
    Properly designed agroforestry systems (AFS) can generate optimal cocoa bean (BC) yields, produce co-products and provide ecosystem services. This study analyzes the interactions between climate, AFS structure and BC yield ...
  • Cadmium concentration in cocoa beans produced in agroforestry systems of small producers in Panama
