Setting up collaborative water system measures and a governance approach to increase self-sufficiency of freshwater availability for agriculture.
Projects & Practice
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.
A farm employing people with special needs set up a process line and an experimental kitchen, where non-commercial agricultural produce can be turned into new products.
Amstelland Natuurzuivel is a cooperative of farmers in the Amstelland region who set up a milk factory to produce regional dairy products for the Amsterdam area.
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 Romanian farm specialised in crop production invested in modernisation activities to expand its production capacity. As a result, it created job opportunities for the local Roma community.
