A young farmer undertook voluntary agri-environmental commitments to ensure that his land provides a sufficient habitat for overwintering migratory birds and other plants and animals.
Projects & Practice
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
The project took nature-friendly vine cultivation on a family farm a step further to develop zero-waste processing methods that valorise all by-products of grapes in a sustainable and fully circular way. The resulting seeds, oil and flour have proved very popular with customers.
An eco-farm implementing agri-environment-climate measures aims to foster ecosystem services and climate adaptation on-farm as well as promote wider uptake throughout the farming community.
Natural constraint payments play a key role in supporting farms to sustain their profitability and develop in areas that would otherwise be abandoned.
