RECABIO

Main activities in agroecology and Organic Agriculture agenda

This includes the use of cover crops, crop rotations, and conservation tillage practices to promote healthy soil ecosystems and prevent soil erosion

This is the integration of trees and shrubs into agricultural landscapes, which can provide multiple benefits, such as improved soil health, shade for livestock, and increased biodiversity.

Focus on using water efficiently through practices such as rainwater harvesting, irrigation scheduling, and the use of drought-resistant crops.

The integration of livestock into farming systems provides a source of manure for fertilization, reduce weed pressure, and contribute to diversified income streams.

The planting of a variety of crops on a farm can improve soil fertility, reduce pest and disease pressure, and provide diverse sources of income.

This includes the protection of natural habitats, the use of renewable resources, and the reduction of waste and pollution.

Use a range of methods to manage pests and diseases, including the use of natural predators and beneficial insects, cultural practices, and biopesticides.

RECABIO works to develop local and regional markets for agroecological and organic products and to strengthen value chains that support sustainable and equitable food systems.

This includes the maintenance of traditional crop varieties and the use of seed banks to conserve genetic diversity.

RECABIO is engaged in policy advocacy and dialogue to promote policies that support agroecological and organic farming practices and to raise awareness of the benefits of sustainable and equitable food systems.

We focus on designing farming systems that are resilient, adaptable, and able to cope with climate change and other stressors.

RECABIO uses monitoring and evaluation tools to assess the impact of agroecological and organic agriculture interventions on farming systems, livelihoods, and the environment.

We encourage farmers to experiment with new practices and technologies and to participate in research aimed at improving farming systems.

RECABIO recognizes the importance of social organization and networking for the success of agroecological initiatives, including the development of farmer cooperatives and community-based organizations.

RECABIO provides training and capacity building opportunities for farmers, extension workers, and other stakeholders to promote the adoption of agroecological practices.
