Strategies for Organic and Low input farming to Mitigate and Adapt to Climate Change – SOLMACC
LIFE MontadoAdapt aim to implement and promote the adaptation of Montado/Dehesa system to climate change, trough the adaptation at level social, environmental and economic.
Description of the project:
In the LIFE project SOLMACC (Strategies for Organic and Low input farming to Mitigate and Adapt to Climate Change), twelve organic farms in Sweden, Germany and Italy apply climate-friendly practices and are expected to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by about 15% compared to average farms under similar climatic conditions, as well as improve adaption to the negative effects of climate change. The applied practices include:
– optimised on-farm nutrient recycling
– optimised crop rotation
– reduced tillage
They are adapted to the specific climatic area and farm conditions and are closely monitored by scientists.
