Projects & Practice
The BeeScanning app combines the use of artificial intelligence and smartphones, enabling beekeepers to easily detect Varroa mites and reduce the risk of death in their bee communities.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
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.
Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
The project has created entirely new operating models to improve the well-being of agricultural entrepreneurs and how they can cope with difficulties.
A young female farmer decided to renovated an old building on the family farm and offer accommodation for tourists.
