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.
Projects & Practice
Operation M10.1.19 focuses on result-oriented and focused Rural Development Programme (RDP) interventions to stabilise endangered habitats, species and plants and thus reverse the decline of biodiversity in Austria’s agricultural regions.
Supporting this environmentally sound and biodiversity-promoting management action is one of the most successful operations of the Austrian Agri-Environmental-Climate Scheme.
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
Set up an operational group to test different practices for optimal catch crop management and assess their efficiency in reducing nitrogen and carbon emissions.
Catch crops supported by the AEC measure in Baden-Württemberg play a key role in reducing the nitrate level in the region.
EAFRD funding helped set up associations that bring together local stakeholders with diverse interests to manage the implementation of Nature 2000 conservation rules.
