Projects & Practice
CAP funds help identify opportunities for improving localised linen production.
The EIP AGRI Operational Group FitoMicorrizas developed new sustainable cultivation strategies to produce mycorrhizae between native species of highly valued mycorrhizal fungi and plants.
A cooperation project that promotes sustainable water use and smart irrigation, contributing to the mitigation of climate change and improving the quantity and quality of crop production.
An EIP Operational Group worked on upscaling the production of Plasma Activated Water (PAW) and on demonstrating its effectiveness and cost efficiency as a sustainable nitrogen fertiliser.
Developing a Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) in the Netherlands as an alternative to formal certification for small producers operating in short supply chains.
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 was set up to develop new agronomic tools that will enable farmers to use pivot irrigation more efficiently.
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.
