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.
Projects & Practice
A young female farmer used RDP support to install a cow herd management system which improved the economic and animal welfare performance of the farm.
A company offering agricultural services to farmers used RDP support to acquire a new combine harvester and a nitrogen testing equipment which regulates the amount of fertiliser applied across the entire crop.
A small farm converted to organic vegetable production and in so doing successfully increased its competitiveness and profitability.
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
A farmer in a Less Favoured Area turned to organic agriculture and began growing ancient varieties of cereals. He has achieved sustainability through niche, quality production.
RDP support helped a young entrepreneur to acquire the necessary equipment in order to start his own wood construction business in an area of high unemployment.
