Investing in cutting edge production techniques (hydroponics in pots) allowed a farmer to fill a gap in the market increasing the availability of vegetables in winter, with minimal environmental impact.
Projects & Practice
A young entrepreneur used RDP support to build a state-of-the-art greenhouse for growing cherry tomatoes, using an innovative hydroponic system.
A subsistence farm used RDP support in order to become commercially viable by investing in organic production.
An agricultural cooperative invested in setting up organic apple orchards with anti-hail nets. They also acquired agricultural machinery to support the production of organic beef.
The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
