Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
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.
The Organic farming measure in the Austrian Rural Development Programme (RDP) helps preserve and enhance biodiversity; establish nutrient cycles on farms and reduce input, while also increasing soil fertility.
Supporting this environmentally sound and biodiversity-promoting management action is one of the most successful operations of the Austrian Agri-Environmental-Climate Scheme.
An award-winning organic farm in Finland set up a food production network with neighbouring farms aiming to achieve energy and nutrient self-sufficiency.
A cooperative of apple producers set up a joint effort among its members to control the codling moth, a major pest, by means of sexual confusion.
project focusing on the protection and promotion of a breed of cattle specific to Western Macedonia, the Greek Red Kastoria-Kristalopigi cow.
Granting a premium to support viticulture on steep slopes and terraced vineyards as a high-quality farming practice
Precision farming has great economic and environmental potentials and a project was set up to promote its use in the Austrian context.
Implementing a result-based nature conservation measure for species and habitat protection as to allow more flexibility for farmers in choosing and implementing management activities suitable to their land.
