Collaborative learning and tools for assessing soil health contribute to farmers’ understanding of problems and alternative management strategies.
Projects & Practice
Operation M10.1.19 focuses on result-oriented and focused Rural Development Programme (RDP) interventions to stabilise endangered habitats, species and plants and thus reverse the decline of biodiversity in Austria’s agricultural regions.
The Organic farming measure in the Austrian Rural Development Programme (RDP) helps preserve and enhance biodiversity; establish nutrient cycles on farms and reduce input, while also increasing soil fertility.
Using the Rural Development Programme (RDP) to support the re-establishment of a moor by restoring its original hydrology and the propagation of the natural moor vegetation.
Supporting this environmentally sound and biodiversity-promoting management action is one of the most successful operations of the Austrian Agri-Environmental-Climate Scheme.
An award-winning organic farm in Finland set up a food production network with neighbouring farms aiming to achieve energy and nutrient self-sufficiency.
Developing a herd management tool to optimise efficiency and animal welfare on dairy farms.
On-farm processing can add value to the product and can also make farming a more attractive choice for young farmers - as demonstrated by a berry farm in Finland.
‘Nature Connects’ is a campaign to raise and generate awareness on the importance of biodiversity in rural landscapes by bringing together land owners, experts and the broader public.
