An organic cattle breeding farm is working to reverse the degradation of environmental conditions on the farm, whilst ensuring its long-term economic sustainability.
Projects & Practice
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
Introducing a new forest management method that ensures the rapid and natural rejuvenation of harvested forests.
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.
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.
Using Rural Development Programme (RDP) support to set up modern poplar plantations in response to the increasing demand from industry for high quality raw materials
Natural constraint payments play a key role in supporting farms to sustain their profitability and develop in areas that would otherwise be abandoned.
Operation M10.1.19 focuses on result-oriented and focused Rural Development Programme (RDP) interventions to stabilise endangered habitats, species and plants and thus reverse the decline of biodiversity in Austria’s agricultural regions.
Supporting this environmentally sound and biodiversity-promoting management action is one of the most successful operations of the Austrian Agri-Environmental-Climate Scheme.
Planting new woodland under a scheme in a partnership between Forestry services, a local authority and the local community.
