A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
A young female farmer invested in the construction of greenhouses and an irrigation system to improve her farm’s profitability and mitigate production risks linked to climate change.
Expanding the production capacity of a pig farm in Denmark, while improving animal welfare and reducing NH3 emissions.
Promoting extensive grazing in a communal area to enhance biodiversity in and around a Natura 2000 designated area.
Rural Development Progamme investment support enabled a conventional broiler farmer to construct a new energy efficient broiler house.
Developing a new and practical system to manage pig manure more efficiently, as a means to significantly reduce NH3 emissions and produce green energy.
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 no-till cultivation equipment to enhance soil quality, reduce pollution and maximise their soil’s capacity to act as a carbon sink.
Elevated growing trays and the automation of some management tasks has enabled strawberry production to be less reliant on external inputs and to re-use irrigation water.
Developing a regional sustainable transport and mobility scheme through coordinated data analysis, multi-actor engagement and innovative solutions to improve inclusiveness
