Evaluation of agro-climatic risk management for the optimization of agricultural systems

Coordinators:

PhD. Mario Herrera Soler and MSc. Mary J. Codorniú Pujals

Objective:

  • To characterize and evaluate the agro - climatic conditions for the management of agricultural systems to provide a tool for improving food security.
  • To ensure the preparation of human resources for agro - climatic characterization of agricultural systems.

Addressed to:

  • Firms and dedicated to the exploitation of agricultural, livestock and forestry systems producers.
  • Entities related to land use planning.

Potential benefits:

  • Agro-climatic risk assessment to optimize the management of agricultural systems.
  • Increased agricultural yields due to improving efficiency and optimizing agro-climatic systems.
  • Efficient use of irrigation water, fuel, agricultural inputs and the use of labor by anticipating growing conditions.
  • Optimization of plant breeding through the proper selection of the time of sowing or planting, location of critical periods and harvest time.
  • Agro-meteorological forecast on time to make decisions related to the management of agricultural systems.

Services offered:

  • Reducing farm risk before extreme events determined by climate variability.
  • Training managers, specialists and workers in the management of agricultural systems and agro-climatic considering agro-meteorological information.
  • Assessment of the production potential, determination of critical periods and limiting factors in the current conditions and future climate scenarios , as a result of climate changes (technical report and proposed plan of action). 90-120 days.
  • Organization of an agricultural calendar adjusted to the prevailing agro-climatic conditions and future climate scenarios resulting as a consequence of climate change (technical report and proposed plan of action). 60-90 days.
  • Agro-climatic risk assessment of agricultural systems before extreme events and changes in the weather conditions (technical and proposed plan of action report). 60-90 days.
  • Agro-climatic risk assessment to optimize the management of agricultural systems Designing early warning systems for coping with agricultural drought, wildfires and extreme current conditions and future climate scenarios events. 60-90 days.
  • Environmental impact assessment of agricultural systems in the current agro-climatic conditions and future climate scenarios. (Technical and proposed plan of action report). 60-90 days.
  • Implementation of an agro-meteorological stations network.
  • Plan for training specialists in Agricultural Meteorology from the undergraduate and graduate levels.
  • Designing of early warning systems for coping with extreme agroclimatic events.
  • Improvement and rational use of agrometeorological information for the management of agricultural systems.

Education and training:

  • Courses for Agricultural Meteorology. 40 hours.
  • Courses: Agro-climatology and Sustainable Water Management. 40 hours.
  • Courses Agro-climatic hazards. 40 hours.
  • Training in Agricultural Meteorology.

Considerations:

Once a service is selected the customer establishes contractual agreements, which at least have to consider the material, technical and documentary requirements, quality assurance, training requirements, licensing requirements and property protection.
