An EIP-AGRI Operational Group project on the use of insects for adding value to organic residues from agriculture.
Projects & Practice
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 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.
A Finnish NGO used EAFRD funds to develop a network of nature-based service providers and activities to support their development such as study trips and work groups.
