A CAP-funded knowledge-sharing project to help farmers reduce agricultural pollution and improve water quality.
Projects & Practice
A CAP-funded knowledge transfer project targeting mushrooms producers in the Netherlands.
A CAP-funded knowledge sharing project to promote direct marketing and to bridge the gap between producers and consumers in the Netherlands.
Developing a Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) in the Netherlands as an alternative to formal certification for small producers operating in short supply chains.
A knowledge transfer project to raise dairy farmers’ awareness about reducing nutrient leaching and run-off in order to improve water quality.
This project combined state-of-the-art sensoring techniques and models with a participatory monitoring process with farmers and water authorities to create a common understanding of the main local challenges and possible solutions to enhance water quality. In addition, the process empowered individual farmers to become equal partners with water authorities as they gained knowledge and access to data. Problems with water management differ between regions, but the process of jointly collecting, learning from and acting on data can be applied across regions.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
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 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.
