CAP support in Ireland improves farm safety and wellbeing of agricultural workers.
Projects & Practice
CAP funds help identify opportunities for improving localised linen production.
An EIP AGRI Operational Group designed an arts competition to increase awareness among young people about the environmental impacts of intensively farming peat soils.
An EIP Operational Group worked on upscaling the production of Plasma Activated Water (PAW) and on demonstrating its effectiveness and cost efficiency as a sustainable nitrogen fertiliser.
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.
Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Developing an integrated identification and control system that enables the detection of pests in fields and gardens and determines the optimal time to apply protective measures.
An EIP-AGRI operational group on improving the soil’s quality and structure, using new generation microelements and microorganisms.
The North Connemara Locally Led Agri-Environmental Scheme is a local agricultural scheme to incentivise farmers to incorporate agricultural animals in improving the ecology of their land.
