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.
Projects & Practice
Modernisation of a rice farm in Portugal through the application of precision farming in its irrigation infrastructure.
The project has created entirely new operating models to improve the well-being of agricultural entrepreneurs and how they can cope with difficulties.
Building a reservoir to catch runoff water and provide protection against floods in a vulnerable area.
A family farm specialised on wine production used RDP support to acquire a new tractor and in this way improve its productivity and competitiveness.
A Technical Assistance project about empowering local and regional actors to work more effectively with rural communities in order to revitalise these areas.
RDP support helped a family farm to generate added value by applying a sustainable model of production through biodynamic agriculture.
A leading manufacturer of conserves and jams used RDP support to increase its winter water storage capacity for use during the summer dry months.
This project is an example of how villagers can get access to high-speed broadband networks even in remote and sparsely populated rural areas. It is the winning initiative of the 2019 Rural Inspiration Awards in the 'Rural Revitalisation' category.
A company created a modular rearing system that allows them to combine egg and quality rooster meat production, while respecting the environment and animal welfare.
