An agricultural business used RDP support to improve its capacity to process and store its produce, while producing renewable energy from the sun.
An example of how afforestation allows for the development and maintenance of farm lands where crop cultivation is almost impossible.
Acquisition of a wood chipper that produces chips for cogeneration more efficiently, thus reducing the cost of tools and consumables per unit of finished product.
Switching from manual labour to mechanised work in order to make the business much more cost effective.
Bringing together public authorities, research institutes and farmers to explore low carbon emission production models in agriculture.
