main constraints in agrosalud i
Main constraints in AgroSalud I
  • Limited budged ( US$ 50,000 for three years)
  • Limited time: most of the cultivars were released at the end of the project.
  • 30% SalomónPérez time during the first year and 50% the following two
  • No records about seeds distribution
  • NAR´s innestability
  • Lack of information (cultivars to be released, where, when, etc)
crops and countries selection
Crops and countries selection
  • Criteria:

1. National production (per capita)

  • Consumption (per capita)
  • Iron, Zinc or Vitamin A deficiency as a level of public health problem
  • Income (per capita)
  • Poverty (<1.25 US/day)

Information sources:

Production and consumption: FAO (2009).

Iron deficiency: Worldwide prevalence of anaemia 1993-2005. WHO 

Zinc deficiency: Assessment of the Risk of Zinc Deficiency in Populations and Options for Its Control. IZING.

Vitamin A: Global prevalence of vitamin A deficiency in populations at risk 1995–2005. WHO. 2005.

Income and Poverty: World Bank

potential socioeconomic studies
Potential Socioeconomic Studies

First year:

-Diagnostic per selected countries to identify diffusion strategies (main actors, geographic zones, target populating)

-Baseline construction for at least two countries where biofortifed cultivars are close to be released (Nicaragua-Bolivia).

-Adoption analysis for bean cultivar ICTA PETEN in Guatemala

- Panama –Beans: Base Line

Second year:

-Consumer and producer acceptance analysis for different crops recently released in two different countries
