A CAP-funded cooperation project to strengthen the competitiveness of agricultural companies that minimise nutrient leakage, thereby contributing to the long-term goal of minimising agricultural nutrient leakage in the Baltic Sea by 2045.
Projects & Practice
A pig meat producing short supply chain developed a marketing strategy to strengthen its brand and increase demand for its high-quality products.
Developing a Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) in the Netherlands as an alternative to formal certification for small producers operating in short supply chains.
CAP-funded cooperation catalyses more and better organic production in Tuscany.
This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality. In addition, the process empowered individual farmers to become equal partners with water authorities as they gained knowledge and access to data. Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.
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.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group was set up to develop new agronomic tools that will enable farmers to use pivot irrigation more efficiently.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for 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.
Modernisation of a rice farm in Portugal through the application of precision farming in its irrigation infrastructure.
