Projects & Practice
MUNTER integrates objectives for water, soil and flood protection with broader objectives such as climate protection, biodiversity and animal welfare.
Setting up a hybrid irrigation system using solar energy to reduce energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions.
A results-based agri-environment scheme (AES) for permanent grasslands in Baden-Württemberg.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group was set up to develop new agronomic tools that will enable farmers to use pivot irrigation more efficiently.
Developing an integrated identification and control system that enables the detection of pests in fields and gardens and determines the optimal time to apply protective measures.
An EIP-AGRI operational group on improving the soil’s quality and structure, using new generation microelements and microorganisms.
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.
