Using the Agri-environment-climate Measure to support the preservation of the Hungarian Coldblood horse breed.
Projects & Practice
Offering support to maintain and possibly increase populations of specific rare breeds under the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 of Ireland.
A non-productive investment for restoring farm stone walls brings multiple practical, environmental and heritage benefits.
A results-based agri-environment scheme (AES) for permanent grasslands in Baden-Württemberg.
A young farmer received RDP support to build stone wall terraces, helping him to improve the farm’s productivity, while protecting its soil from erosion.
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.
An eco-farm implementing agri-environment-climate measures aims to foster ecosystem services and climate adaptation on-farm as well as promote wider uptake throughout the farming community.
Operation M10.1.19 focuses on result-oriented and focused Rural Development Programme (RDP) interventions to stabilise endangered habitats, species and plants and thus reverse the decline of biodiversity in Austria’s agricultural regions.
Supporting this environmentally sound and biodiversity-promoting management action is one of the most successful operations of the Austrian Agri-Environmental-Climate Scheme.
