Title : Biotechologies experiencies: Cannabis spp. as a new form to produce under dry arid ando deserts zones
Arid and semi-arid zones occupy a little more than half of the territory in Mexico. It is estimated that they house some six thousand plant species, of which about 50% are exclusive to our country. The Seris (COMCAAC), an Amerindian people living in the west-central Mexican state of Sonora, have been promoting sustainable agricultural production systems. The application of bioderivatives of crustacean exoskeletons such as chitosan (QUI) and microorganisms that promote plant growth, endomycorrhizal, symbiont, beneficial, and antagonist, in some crops have shown to be an alternative in agricultural production systems, obtaining improvements in crop yields. However, currently, with the aim of promoting new products and under the production of secondary metabolites of the cannabinoid family, interest in Cannabis spp. has been taken with emphasis, especially due to the limitation of studies on the effect of these bioderivatives such as QUI and microbial under conditions of aridity and salinity and use of seawater.
