Using the Agri-environment-climate Measure to support the preservation of the Hungarian Coldblood horse breed.
Preserving forest genetic resources to increase the resilience of forests against the impacts of climate change.
Offering support to maintain and possibly increase populations of specific rare breeds under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 of Ireland.
A family farm converted to organic lavender farming in order to diversify their offer of products and services in an environmentally sustainable way.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
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 conservation tillage equipment (subsoilers and no till seeding machine) to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink
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.
