A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
Support from the Swedish Rural Development Programme helped improve accessibility for visitors in a restored municipal nature reserve.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
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.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group working together to increase the implementation of multifunctional hedgerows that offer environmental benefits as well as climate mitigation and adaptation.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
Restoration of a deteriorating forest road and the construction of a wooden lookout tower in order to protect 1500 ha of forest from forest fires.
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.
Granting a premium to support viticulture on steep slopes and terraced vineyards as a high-quality farming practice
