Projects & Practice
CAP funds invest in innovative Maltese aquaponics and vertical farming greenhouse
Maltese young farmer receives CAP funds to help set-up rabbit breeding business.
A CAP-funded cooperation project to strengthen the competitiveness of agricultural companies that minimise nutrient leakage, thereby contributing to the long-term goal of minimising agricultural nutrient leakage in the Baltic Sea by 2045.
Developing a Participatory Guarantee System (PGS) in the Netherlands as an alternative to formal certification for small producers operating in short supply chains.
A cooperation project to develop the technology for growing and processing organic hemp seeds.
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.
A young farmer used RDP investment support for the construction of a facility for primary processing of grain seeds.
An organic cattle breeding family farm used RDP investment support to acquire machinery for the efficient harvest of high-quality animal feed.
