In response to the seasonal work force crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, this project helped to provide counselling and guidance services related to employment issues via multiple communication channels.
Projects & Practice
A family farm used support from multiple Rural Development Programme (RDP) measures to ensure the farm’s viability and diversify towards a quality focused and profit-oriented business.
The project has created entirely new operating models to improve the well-being of agricultural entrepreneurs and how they can cope with difficulties.
A family farm specialised on wine production used RDP support to acquire a new tractor and in this way improve its productivity and competitiveness.
Switching from manual labour to mechanised work in order to make the business much more cost effective.
Setting up a fruit juice processing plant that operates with renewable energy.
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
Ensuring the productivity of a fruit-producing business by replacing low-yield apricot orchards with more reliable plants.
Punkalaidun municipality conducted a feasibility study for setting up a biogas plant producing energy from manure, which resulted in an investment decision.
