GOTECFOR is an EIP-AGRI operational group that contributes to the bioeconomy by seeking to optimise the value chain of forest biomass, as a fuel for heating.
Projects & Practice
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.
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.
A small family forestry business used RDP support to acquire new machinery that would enable it to respond to the increasing demand for forest services.
A dairy farm combined three RDP supported operations to increase and modernise milk production and secure one full-time job.
