Promoting extensive grazing in a communal area to enhance biodiversity in and around a Natura 2000 designated area.
Projects & Practice
A small farm converted to organic vegetable production and in so doing successfully increased its competitiveness and profitability.
The Organic farming measure in the Austrian Rural Development Programme (RDP) helps preserve and enhance biodiversity; establish nutrient cycles on farms and reduce input, while also increasing soil fertility.
A farmer in a Less Favoured Area turned to organic agriculture and began growing ancient varieties of cereals. He has achieved sustainability through niche, quality production.
