An EIP-AGRI Operational Group was set up to develop new agronomic tools that will enable farmers to use pivot irrigation more efficiently.
Projects & Practice
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.
PRATI-CO is an EIP-AGRI Operational Group project dedicated to the study of good agricultural practices recommended for the preservation and maintenance of organic matter in the area which is famous for the production of Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.
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.
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.
Offering a coordinated multi-stakeholder approach in terms of training, technology transfer and decision making to finding alternative approaches to pest management and reducing pesticide use in the wine-producing sector of Tuscany.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group working together to increase the implementation of multifunctional hedgerows that offer environmental benefits as well as climate mitigation and adaptation.
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.
An EIP AGRI operational group was set up in Emilia Romagna to identify agronomic techniques that contribute to the reduction of Green House Gas (GHG) emissions in organic farming.
