Contribution from soil and biomass management in organic production systems to strengthen Brazil’s green economy
The overall objective of this project was to strengthen Brazil’s green economy by harmonizing economic development and environmental conservation through sustainable agriculture that does not harm the environment, using soil and plant biomass management in organic production systems as a starting point. Unlike many agricultural production systems, organic agriculture offers a range of practices and techniques that potentially contribute to increase sustainability, including soil and plant biomas

Essential oil-based bioproduct for soybean seed sanitary treatment in organic or ecologically based systems.
The objective of this project is to select essential oils that have the potential for sanitary treatment in organic soybean production systems without interference in seed germination and are concomitantly compatible with the Bradyrhizobium bacteria, used to promote Biological Nitrogen Fixation (BNF) in the crop.

High efficiency and high quality rhizobium inoculants for cowpeas, peanuts and bambara groundnuts North of Ghana
Cowpeas, peanuts and bambara groundnuts ( Vigna subterranea) are important pulses or dry grain legumes in the West of Africa; hence low cost technologies that increase their productivity could entail major nutritional and social impacts. Field experiments conducted in Ghana, in Africa, have shown 40% to 100% increments to production, after the use of rhizobium inoculants supplied by Embrapa.

Increased range of benefits from rhizobium inoculant technology for family farming in the North of Ghana
Northern Ghana is the most important region of this African country for the production of cereals and legumes, but the soils are degraded and lack nitrogen and phosphorus, basic nutrients for the growth of such crops. Previous projects therein had proven that the use of quality inoculants can improve nodulation and increase grain production by 30% to 50%. This project aimed to effectively increase the yields of cowpeas, peanuts and soybeans for smallholders in the region, based on the use of loc
