Projects & Practice
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from 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.
A major exporting agricultural company in Portugal, used EAFRD support to develop a state-of-the-art innovative, greenhouse production unit.
An example of sustainable cultivation of olive trees and extraction of olive oil using innovative ultrasound techniques.
An organic mountain farm uses indigenous breeds to produce high-quality meat, while preserving the local environment and genetic resources.
A series of theoretical and practical training courses on work safety for small private forest owners and forest users.
A fruit and vegetables producing cooperative used RDP support to expand its cold storage capacity in order to better respond to market trends.
Two RDP funded projects enabled a company specialised on biomass heating to grow by financing the purchase of mobile wood chipper and later on a pelleting system.
