A dairy family farm in Sweden invested in a biogas powered generator and a storage facility for substrates in order to become self-sufficient through the use of green energy.
Projects & Practice
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
The creation of wetlands in the agricultural landscape can contribute in decreasing the leakage of nutrients into water bodies.
This LEADER-funded project created several small wetlands and helped raise awareness of and interest in water protection among landowners. It also contributed to increasing the amount of available water in the island of Gotland.
