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 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.
A land consolidation project helped restore the functionality of vineyard terraces and thus maintained a landscape which is a habitat of rare species.
A family farm used RDP support to switch from cattle to turkey breeding in response to market demand.
The challenge of increasing food production without harming the environment might be solved through innovative production techniques, such as aquaponics.
