    Colombia

    In Colombia, right-wing leadership returned to power after winning the presidential elections in 2018 in a campaign in which they opposed the previous government, primarily because of the negotiations and peacemaking with the FARC-EP (Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia—Ejército del Pueblo ‘Armed Revolutionary Forces of Colombia—People’s Army’), Colombia’s largest guerrilla organization.

    The natural salt meadows of Tilopozo in the hyperarid, Atacama Desert of northern Chile, which are located at approximately 2800 m above sea level, are under pressure from industrial activity, and cultivation and grazing by local communities. In this research, the land surface covered by salt meadow vegetation was estimated from normalized difference vegetation indices (NDVI) derived from Landsat Thematic Mapper (TM), Enhanced Thematic Mapper (ETM+) and Operational Land Imager (OLI) data from 1985 to 2016.

    The global food market makes international players intrinsically connected through the flow of commodities, demand, production, and consumption. Local decisions, such as new economic policies or dietary shifts, can foster changes in coupled human–natural systems across long distances. Understanding the causes and effects of these changes is essential for agricultural-export countries, such as Brazil. Since 2000, Brazil has led the expansion of soybean planted area—19 million hectares, or 47.5% of the world’s increase. Soybean is among the major crop commodities traded globally.

    The factors influencing the size and shape of exptl. field plots (area of exptl. lot, soil types, trial objective, no. of replicates, and degree of accuracy and homogeneity of the exptl. material) for the execution of field expt. are discussed. The basic principles of the following different methods to determine plot size are described: max. curve method, method of Koch and Rigney, Hatheway's method, and the max. curve method using the multiple linear regression model. Some considerations are presented on the border effect and on plot size in bush and climbing bean trials.

    Efforts to develop cassava technology for the vast areas of acid infertile soils were continued Large-scale germplasm screening in the field was begun in Carimagua for tolerance to low levels of P and acidity and in Quilichao, for tolerance to low levels of P. Various fertilizer trials were used to determine: (a) nutrient absorption and distribution within the plant during a 12-mo.

    Research of the physiology section was centered on identifying the characters associated with high root yields and quality in cassava under stress conditions. Plant reaction to water stress was studied, specifically regarding growth and yields of var. M Mex 59 and M Col 22 with a period of artificial rain exclusion. Observations were made throughout the stress period and subsequent recovery. Water stress reduced LAI notably although M Mex 59 maintained a LAI approx. twice that of M Col 22 during the stress period. LAI for both var.

    Some cultural control measures of weeds in cassava are discussed: quality of the material, planting system and density, density x plant type interaction and use of mulching. In order to study the interaction plant type x planting density, var. M Mex 59 (vigorous) and M Col 22 (nonvigorous) were planted in plots of 7500 and 15,000 plants/ha; and 3 levels of weed control were established: complete, intermediate and no control. The vigorous var.

    Se presentan resultados de la investigacion en produccion y utilizacion de pastos y forrajes que indican que en condiciones relativamente buenas de fertilidad natural y de retencion de humedad de los suelos, representadas por la region del litoral ecuatoriano entre Quevedo y Santo Domingo, es posible obtener aumentos de peso diario en novillos de engorde del orden de 450 g/animal y, con cargas de hasta 3 animales, lograr producciones promedio de carne de hasta 1,5 kg/ha/dia, o sea mas de 500 kg/ha/ano, de modo que los animales alcanzan el peso de mercado antes de los 2,5 anos de edad; tambi
