This project aims to lay the foundation for the development of platform technologies, promote the use of genetic resources and generate products in species of the Solanaceae family, especially the tomato, to counteract the effects of climate change on agriculture and the economies of Latin American countries. Researchers will develop appropriate tools and knowledge of aspects of pre-breeding in the Latin American countries as a basis for use in programs aimed at obtaining commercial tomato varieties with characteristics of abiotic stress tolerance and pathogen resistance to cope with the impacts of climate change.
