A dairy family farm in Sweden invested in a biogas powered generator and a storage facility for substrates in order to become self-sufficient through the use of green energy.
Projects & Practice

A company offering agricultural services to farmers used RDP support to acquire a new combine harvester and a nitrogen testing equipment which regulates the amount of fertiliser applied across the entire crop.
Support from the rural development programme was used to buy new machinery and expand the production capacity of a biogas plant.
An agricultural business used RDP support to improve its capacity to process and store its produce, while producing renewable energy from the sun.
A company that produces ice-cider in northern Sweden, combined RDP support and crowdfunding to plant an apple orchard that would support its production needs.
