Stone Pine Cultivation and the Emerging Bioeconomy in Chile
September 30, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am EDT
Pinus pinea is a Mediterranean species whose edible seeds are highly valued and demanded worldwide. The cones are harvested mainly from natural forests, and the pine nuts are considered nontimber forest products. Cropping of this species generates income from cone or pine nut sales, creates jobs, and provides multiple social and environmental benefits, contributing to rural development. In the presentation, Dr. Muñoz will discuss the potential contribution of stone pine, an emerging crop in Chile, in terms of its socioeconomic benefits and its relationship with the bioeconomy. An economic assessment of stone pine cultivation was estimated under different management schemes, but regardless of the scheme, stone pine plantations would contribute to sustainable socioeconomic development, representing opportunities to transition to a bioeconomy.
