Projects & Practice
An initiative to promote young farmers participation entrepreneurship and innovation
for sustainable rural areas
Using RDP support to establish an agricultural holding, purchase agricultural machinery and launch a young farmer’s career .
In order to improve the economic performance of his holding, a young farmer received support to increase the cultivated land and to build an irrigated greenhouse for the production of vegetables.
In Sweden, local non-profit associations, encouraged and supported by the public sector, are carrying out the building of broadband infrastructure in the countryside.
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
A small commune in Romania used EAFRD support to restore and promote its local landmark: a botanical garden, and design a training programme on environmental aspects for young farmers.
