Rural Development Programme (RDP) support was used for helping to prevent forest fires in a former military testing area in Brandenburg, Germany, that is heavily contaminated with explosive material.
Projects & Practice
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.
Catch crops supported by the AEC measure in Baden-Württemberg play a key role in reducing the nitrate level in the region.
A company that produces wine and olive oil developed a strategy to improve its water use efficiency and receives AECM support for its water-saving agricultural good practices.
