Projects & Practice
Organic and biodynamic farms cooperate to jointly acquire no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
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 small farm converted to organic vegetable production and in so doing successfully increased its competitiveness and profitability.
Investing in facilities that respect animal welfare enabled a meat processing company to improve its profitability while responding to society’s ethical concerns.
A Sardinian agricultural company applied for RDP support in order to maintain its organic agriculture production systems.
Brand new manufacturing and packaging procedures were developed in order to produce healthy nutritional products for children from fruit and vegetables.
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
