Projects & Practice
A family farm converted to organic lavender farming in order to diversify their offer of products and services in an environmentally sustainable way.
The BeeScanning app combines the use of artificial intelligence and smartphones, enabling beekeepers to easily detect Varroa mites and reduce the risk of death in their bee communities.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
A new participatory approach for increasing landowners’ knowledge on how to manage drainage ditches that play a key role in Swedish agriculture.
A young female farmer invested in the construction of greenhouses and an irrigation system to improve her farm’s profitability and mitigate production risks linked to climate change.
Support from the Swedish Rural Development Programme helped improve accessibility for visitors in a restored municipal nature reserve.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire conservation tillage equipment (subsoilers and no till seeding machine) to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
