A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Projects & Practice
A new participatory approach for increasing landowners’ knowledge on how to manage drainage ditches that play a key role in Swedish agriculture.
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.
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
An example of sustainable cultivation of olive trees and extraction of olive oil using innovative ultrasound techniques.
A family farm used LEADER support to build a new greenhouse that would provide optimum conditions for growing traditional varieties of Estonian roses.
A series of knowledge-transfer activities to increase knowledge and skills on organic plant and animal production, processing and marketing.
A small rural business used RDP support to purchase new stone-cutting equipment in order to expand its range of products.
Financed by the Romanian rural development programme, a small patisserie and confectionary workshop upscaled its business by constructing a new building to increase its production capacity and offer utility areas to customers.
