A leading manufacturer of conserves and jams used RDP support to increase its winter water storage capacity for use during the summer dry months.
Given that compost for growing oyster mushrooms was not produced in Romania and had to be imported, a group of farmers used EAFRD to build a plant for producing compost using their own wheat straw.
A small commune in Romania used EAFRD support to restore and promote its local landmark: a botanical garden, and design a training programme on environmental aspects for young farmers.
