An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Projects & Practice
Developing an integrated identification and control system that enables the detection of pests in fields and gardens and determines the optimal time to apply protective measures.
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.
In Finland, trialling the winter harvesting of the common reed provides a greater availability of sustainable resources with collateral environmental benefits.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
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.
Refurbishment of a mountain path to stimulate economic activity and thus contribute to the revitalisation of the neighbouring rural areas.
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
RDP support financed a series of restoration and basic works on a historic monument church in rural Romania.
