EAFRD support enabled a young person to start his own commercially-oriented farm, thus contributing to the generational renewal of the sector.
Projects & Practice
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
Incorporating locally available biomass into the soil, as a mean to increase its content in organic matter in the long term.
Using RDP support to establish an agricultural holding, purchase agricultural machinery and launch a young farmer’s career .
A young farmer invested in precision farming through the acquisition of a new sprayer; combining cost savings and environmental protection.
In order to improve the economic performance of his holding, a young farmer received support to increase the cultivated land and to build an irrigated greenhouse for the production of vegetables.
Setting up an innovative enterprise in a historic building to strengthen the regional and local agricultural economy, while promoting employment and tourism.
De Putter is an example of how small communities that are facing a declining level of services can improve their livelihood and promote social cohesion.
A small commune in Romania used EAFRD support to restore and promote its local landmark: a botanical garden, and design a training programme on environmental aspects for young farmers.
