Photo of article Bio-pesticides to cut chemical use on farms

An EU-funded project developed new natural plant pest and disease control products that some farmers are already using on their farms. The aim is to reduce the use of chemicals to protect crops - a benefit for human health and the environment.

Photo of article Biomass crops are energy efficient and climate friendly

EU-funded researchers planted, harvested, processed and analysed the life cycle of woody crops to establish how efficient and environmentally friendly they are as a source of fuel for electricity and heat.

Photo of article A new perspective on rural land management

Through a series of recommendations encouraging local stakeholders to explore environmental, social and economic issues in rural land management, EU-funded researchers have set out new ways in which agriculture and forestry could become more sustainable.

Photo of article A smart, energy-efficient log forwarder for the forestry sector

The heavy vehicles used in forestry operations could become more energy efficient and kinder to the environment, thanks to technical innovations being developed by the EU-funded Forwarder2020 project. The innovations could also boost the forestry industry's global competitiveness.

Photo of article Revitalising rural areas through social innovation

From local recycling schemes to community-led business start-ups, social innovation can drive the revitalisation of marginalised areas where markets and public administrations have failed. EU-funded researchers are studying examples of social innovation and exploring how best practices can be shared across Europe and beyond.

Photo of article A low-impact transporter lightens the load on forest soils

Forests are versatile renewable resources, but load-carrying forestry machines can damage the soil. An EU-funded project has developed a tracked, off-road timber transporter, or forwarder, that exerts less pressure on soil, as well as a device to measure soil disturbance - part of a sustainable solution to protecting Europe's valuable forests.

Photo of article Ask-Valerie tool could speed up innovation in agriculture

Farmers and foresters are under increasing pressure to produce more quality food while better managing and conserving natural resources and ecosystems. Having the right information and advice can help them meet these challenges. The EU-funded VALERIE project is making innovative research outputs and best practices more easily accessible to farmers and foresters through the ask-Valerie.eu search tool.
