A dairy family farm in Sweden invested in a biogas powered generator and a storage facility for substrates in order to become self-sufficient through the use of green energy.
Projects & Practice
A young female farmer used RDP support to install a cow herd management system which improved the economic and animal welfare performance of the farm.
A company offering agricultural services to farmers used RDP support to acquire a new combine harvester and a nitrogen testing equipment which regulates the amount of fertiliser applied across the entire crop.
An organic cattle breeding farm is working to reverse the degradation of environmental conditions on the farm, whilst ensuring its long-term economic sustainability.
Using RDP support to develop and test a prototype mobile solar power station that can produce clean energy at any location without needing any fixed infrastructure.
A family farm invested in soil conservation practices to increase its capacity to store water and its microbial biomass activity.
EAFRD support enabled a young person to start his own commercially-oriented farm, thus contributing to the generational renewal of the sector.
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.
A project used Rural Development Programme (RDP) funding to ensure easy access to medical and aftercare services for rural residents.
