Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
Projects & Practice
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Using biomass residues to produce a fertiliser, which is then used to grow trees, and will, over time, improve soil quality, has led to significant financial savings for nature conservation organisations and tree nurseries.
A dynamic agricultural cooperative used Rural Development Programme support for the setting up of a modern seed processing facility in order to enhance its competitiveness.
A farm employing people with special needs set up a process line and an experimental kitchen, where non-commercial agricultural produce can be turned into new products.
A cheese-producing farm used RDP support to set up a new plant for producing speciality cheeses and ensure its long-term financial sustainability.
A company created a modular rearing system that allows them to combine egg and quality rooster meat production, while respecting the environment and animal welfare.
In response to the current societal demand for responsible business management and improved animal welfare, farmers in the Netherlands developed an innovative animal friendly barn.
A regional cooperative chain for biomass was established to respond to the increasing demand for woodchip.
A young beekeeping entrepreneur used LEADER support to buy new and innovative equipment for honey production. This enabled him to make the production process less labour-intensive and develop a new range of products.
