Turning a subsistence family farm into a dynamic agri-business through modernization and adoption of affordable new equipment.
Projects & Practice
This project aimed to replace old farming machinery and thus improve the productivity and economic performance of a farm holding.
A small potato-growing farm used RDP support to purchase a new processing line to enhance its economic performance.
Expanding the production capacity of a company producing pumpkin seeds and potatoes, by investing in new machinery.
Investing into new machinery for applying liquid fertilizers on crop production in order to protect ground and surface waters.
A poultry farm used RDP support to modernise its facilities and produce high quality free range eggs.
Setting up a state-of-the-art greenhouse for hydroponic production of tomatoes using renewable energy sources for heating.
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
The Slovakian agricultural cooperative Panovce used EAFRD support to upgrade its dairy facilities and equipment, raising welfare standards and improving production.
A Romanian farm specialised in crop production invested in modernisation activities to expand its production capacity. As a result, it created job opportunities for the local Roma community.
