This project's goal is to identify optimal conditions to store Brazil nut almonds, crude oil and nut flour. The results obtained will contribute to reducing losses in quality and adding value to the Brazil Nut production chain in Mato Grosso

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/01/2013

This project proposes the morphological and physico-chemical analysis of Brazil nut trees, in addition to the study of their diversity, intrapopulation spatial genetic structure, reproductive system, and patterns of seed and pollen dispersal in natural populations located in the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso and Acre. Furthermore, abiotic aspects such as weather variables and soil fertility and structure will be monitored, and there will be a survey on the constitution of the historical ethnob

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/10/2011

Our goal is to train and mentor technicians in the dairy sector; strengthen the ties between research, extension and the production sector; and drive technologies to different regions and target audiences of the state of Mato Grosso through the Continuing Education method called the Training and Visit System - T&V

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/10/2011

The present project is mainly aimed to train technical assistance and rural extension professionals through continuing education courses, consisting of four basic modules to review fundamental knowledge and level up groups. Implementing horticultural technical reference units is one of the goals of the project

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/10/2011

This project consists of the implementation and monitoring of an Integrated Crop-Livestock-Forest (ICLF) system on sustainable bases, with a focus on the assessment of sustainability indicators such as the indicators of improved physical and chemical soil quality; assessment of microbial biomass; and enzyme activity and microbial biodiversity. Hydrological variables and parameters will also be investigated.

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/09/2011

This project aims to promote the exchange of scientific knowledge about forest management and local knowledge about extractivism for biodiversity conservation, enabling the development of rural territories in the Amazon, generating income and improving the quality of life of local populations.

Management technologies and good practices for the sustainable production of forest products will be disseminated, validated and adapted for açai, Brazil chestnut, andiroba, pracaxi, buriti, bacu


Status: In progress     Start date: 01/01/2019

The goal is to assess the economic and ecological effectiveness of different models of forest restoration of degraded areas through the induction of secondary ecological succession, by natural regeneration, planting of seedlings, and the direct sowing of native and exotic tree species to compose the Legal Reserve.

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/10/2011

This project's goal is to map the genes and/or QTLs responsible for Euchistus heros stinkbug resistance, which will contribute to the selection of resistant lineages in breeding programs, and to the decrease in grain damage and in the use of agrochemicals in soybean crops

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/12/2012

“The project aims to investigate the possibilities of using systems of integrated crop-livestock-forest (ICLF) systems as a local development strategy in the state of Mato Grosso. It proposes a discussion of the issue in a broad perspective, taking into account their economic, social, and environmental impacts, and the alignment of this strategy to Federal Government programs, contributing to the promotion of the region’s development.”Keywords: ICLF system, Public Policy, Sustainable Local Devel

Status: Completed     Start date: 01/03/2012

Evaluate the influence of the following production systems: soybean/off-season cotton, soybean/off-season maize, and cotton-off-season maize over the intra and inter-population genetic variability, need to control, and insecticide resistance levels of brown stink bug Euschistus heros.
