The North Connemara Locally Led Agri-Environmental Scheme is a local agricultural scheme to incentivise farmers to incorporate agricultural animals in improving the ecology of their land.
Projects & Practice
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
Organising a series of educational events to raise awareness and interest about the environmental functions of the peatlands in Brandenburg.
An example of sustainable cultivation of olive trees and extraction of olive oil using innovative ultrasound techniques.
An organic mountain farm uses indigenous breeds to produce high-quality meat, while preserving the local environment and genetic resources.
Using RDP support to turn a farm into a nature reserve; contributing to tackling biodiversity loss.
The PAULa scheme’s support for species-rich grasslands from Rheinland-Pfalz represents good practice in its approach to implementing a Results-Based Agri-environment Payment Scheme (RBAPS).
