    This document aims to assess the financial viability of two new forage options to be released in Colombia, as a result of different evaluation and selection processes conducted by AGROSAVIA and its partners. The following varieties were evaluated from an economic perspective: (i) Brachiaria brizantha 26124 hp. Orinoquia for meat production in the Colombian East Plains region; and ii) Megathyrsus Maximus cv. Savannah agrosavia for meat production in the Colombian humid Caribbean region. The methodology is based on a discounted free cash flow model, the estimation of financial feasibility indicators, and an analysis that is based on Monte Carlo simulation, to consider the risk level of critical variables of the model

    Este estudio se realiza como parte del proyecto socio-económico “Estudio de sistemas de pequeños ganaderos eco eficientes hacia diferenciación de productos y pago de servicios ambientales en los municipios de Patía y Mercaderes, Cauca”, contribuyendo al cumplimiento del objetivo específico “Analizar la disposición de los consumidores de carne a pagar por servicios ambientales (PSA) y/ productos diferenciados”. Dicho proyecto se encuentra en el marco del programa de investigación “Desarrollo y uso de recursos forrajeros para sistemas sostenibles de producción bovina para el departamento del Cauca”, realizado entre la Universidad del Cauca y el Programa de Forrajes Tropicales del CIAT, y financiado por Sistema General de Regalías (SGR). El programa está compuesto por cinco proyectos basados en el uso de forrajes tropicales que responden a los siguientes componentes: Germoplasma, Agua, Ambiente, Suelos, y Socio-económico

    Impact of agricultural land conversion on climate change

    Climate change and land use conversion are two major global environmental issues. A claim is made that climate change has brought new challenges for global land use, while land use conversion is hardly realized as a major driver for climate change. Using mapping techniques, this study aims to investigate the relationship between climate change and agricultural land conversion (ALC), by which land is converted from agricultural to other uses (e.g., urban areas, national and natural parks, roads, industrial areas, and afforestation projects). CO2 emission is considered as the main impact of climate change, and agricultural land conversion is regarded as the most important global land use. In this study, data are obtained from two databases: the World Bank and the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) for the period of 1962-2011. Considering the FAO (2015) classification, the countries are categorized into five different groups (high-income non-OECD, high-income OECD, upper-middle-, lower-middle-, and low-income countries). Economies were divided into several income groups according to 2014 gross national income per capita. The results show that agricultural areas in high-income countries have decreased, while in low- to middle-income countries, they have increased. The highest CO2 emissions can be observed, especially in high-income countries, whereas the lowest CO2 emissions happen in the low- and lower-middle-income countries. The results further show that there is a positive relationship between CO2 emissions and ALC across the world. It can be observed that CO2 emission is increasing where agricultural area is declining. On the contrary, CO2 emission is declining where agricultural area is increasing
