Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
Projects & Practice
In an area where the agricultural sector is under pressure due the expansion of a nearby urban centre, the diversification of farming activities e.g. ice-cream production and marketing, can ensure the farm’s sustainability.
A company making pork products used RDP support to purchase new equipment that allowed it to increase production capacity and end product quality.
A company producing rye gin and whiskey used RDP support to increase its production capacity to meet the demand of national and international markets.
A young female farmer used RDP support to set up a traditional backing oven and start selling organic bread in the local area.
A cooperation project brought together local farmers, inhabitants and public services managers to jointly define and promote soil preservation technics adapted to the local environment.
