An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Projects & Practice
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.
Supporting this environmentally sound and biodiversity-promoting management action is one of the most successful operations of the Austrian Agri-Environmental-Climate Scheme.
An educational institution for farmers in Austria used RDP support to develop a training programme using digital, web-based technologies and applications.
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.
A farm producing flowers used RDP support to purchase new equipment and a tractor, thus achieving its goal to enhance and diversify its production.
