Description

The project has the overall objective to demonstrate the use of products based on beneficial microorganisms as a mean to achieve sustainable agricultural development in Bolivia. By the promotion of products containing beneficial microorganisms (i.e. lactic acid bacteria) and the production of bio-fertilizer, the project will assist Bolivian smallholder farmers, to mitigate GHG emissions, build resilience to climate change and develop economically viable agribusiness.

Objective

Project's expected key objectives are:

• Implementation of probiotic supplement in dairy cattle feeding, contributing to a reduced production of methane from enteric fermentation and improved productivity and health of the cattle, generating increased income from the milk sale of smallholder dairy producers.

• New manure management system that utilises the manure to produce organic fertiliser with the application of a bio-stimulant, causing reduced GHG emission from...

Results

Results after completion of Milestone 1:

1. Production facilities at Biotop in Bolivia have been set up to produce microorganisms products: a probiotic supplement for dairy cows (Animal Biosa), and a bio-stimulant to treat manure and produce organic fertiliser (Terra Biosa) and iii. a bio-fertiliser based on fresh manure and added microorganisms. The set up of production includes following activities:

- 600 litres Biosa starter...
