Projects & Practice
The knowledge generated in research and innovation projects is hard to access, thus it is vital to create networks for knowledge transfer between production and research.
A young female farmer introduced a blackberry plantation into a wheat and barley production area and created added value by developing a new range of products. This was the winning initiative of the 2019 Rural Inspiration Awards in the 'Improving competitiveness' category.
A series of seminars to create opportunities for formal and tacit knowledge transfer between experienced farmers and newcomers to agriculture.
Bringing together public authorities, research institutes and farmers to explore low carbon emission production models in agriculture.
A project to shorten the value chain from the farm to the consumer, to increase the availability of high-quality, local foods and to increase local business profitability.
A family farm used LEADER support to build a new greenhouse that would provide optimum conditions for growing traditional varieties of Estonian roses.
An educational peer-to-peer programme for farmers that are engaged into innovative practices, facilitated through participative techniques and scientific expertise.
An ambitious young farmer used RDP support to create a new niche product and a touristic attraction out of his produce of mushrooms that were not suitable for the market.
