Product Environmental Footprint - a standardized method for assessing the environmental impact of products intended for sale in the European Union

Background

Companies from the food industry and all other industries that want to market their products (goods and services) as environmentally friendly within the European Union, will have to consider measuring the environmental performance of any of their products throughout its life cycle. Without an up-to-date and dependable Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) or other sustainability assessment methods, it is almost impossible to make optimal decisions for improving a product’s environmental performance.

Zaštita tla od erozije

Erozija tla vodom, vjetrom i obradom može se smanjiti raznim mjerama zaštite tla. Obrada tla, prakse uzgoja biljaka, kao i praksa upravljanja zemljištem, izravno utječu na cjelokupni problem erozije tla i rješenja na poljoprivrednom gospodarstvu. Kada plodored ili promjena prakse obrade tla nisu dovoljne za kontrolu erozije, potrebni su kombinirani pristupi ili ekstremnije mjere, poput konturiranog oranja (oranje duž krivulje nagnutosti terena), sadnja u pruge ili terasiranje.







Eco scheme: Intensified diversity of agricultural land

Eco scheme Intensified diversity of agricultural land is an intervention within the framework of production-unrelated direct payments, which is paid out in the form of an additional payment to the basic income support. Crop diversity represents an extended form of green practice, which was applied only on arable land. With the aim of increasing the overall diversity of agricultural land, which provides a significant contribution to climate goals and the mosaic of the agricultural landscape and the preservation of biodiversity, the intervention is carried out on all types of agricultural lan










Cover crops

When sown correctly at the right time, in the right position within the rotation, cover crops retain nutrients, conserve water, prevent soil erosion, improve soil fertility and quality, and suppress weeds. Growing cover crops is recognized as a climate-smart agricultural practice.

Where to position and when to time cover crops in the rotation?

• Grow cover crops in the 1 st and 2 nd year after ploughing of clover-grass to avoid nitrogen losses.

• Grow nitrogen fixing cover crops on soils with low fertility.
