An EIP-AGRI Operational Group established a new quality standard for Swedish lamb in order to increase the competitiveness of the sector.
Projects & Practice
A CAP-funded project aimed to build the capacity of small-scale producers to reach the regional market and shorten the region’s food chain.
A CAP-funded cooperation project to strengthen the competitiveness of agricultural companies that minimise nutrient leakage, thereby contributing to the long-term goal of minimising agricultural nutrient leakage in the Baltic Sea by 2045.
A cooperation project to develop an innovative, area-specific model of nature conservation advisory services.
MUNTER integrates objectives for water, soil and flood protection with broader objectives such as climate protection, biodiversity and animal welfare.
This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality. In addition, the process empowered individual farmers to become equal partners with water authorities as they gained knowledge and access to data. Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group is developing a biosensor that will quickly identify mastitis infections in dairy cows and thus improve the efficiency of the sector.
A cooperative venture to develop a new generation energy efficient, thermo-regulated, shed for cattle housing.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
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.
