We offer technical and administrative advice, and support the farmer community

Ecological agriculture

We provide technical advice for all crops and carry out field monitoring. We guide you in everything you need in order to become a certified organic farmer.

Biodynamic agriculture

We provide advice on the basics of biodynamic agriculture, when to apply the preparations and how to produce them in a self-sufficient way.

 

Certification procedures

We offer farmers administrative help in the certification process for organic and biodynamic agriculture  (CCPAE, CAAE, Demeter, Bio Suisse).

 

Soil improvement and compositing

We offer advice on organic fertilization and how to make good compost. Soil improvement is key to recovering fertility.

 

Technical newsletters

We write monthly newsletters with technical advice on plant health management, fertilisation of organic crops, and other  information of interest to the sector.

 

Training

We organize training  workshops and offer courses related to organic crop management.

Applied research

We investigate and conduct field trials to find solutions to difficult problems in organic production.

The OSMIA Initiative

We started this project in 2017 with the aim of increasing the native osmia populations that are decreasing partly due to the lack of shelters and at the same time helping them to be more self-sufficient in the pollination of fruit trees and almond trees. Our breeding of "Osmia cornuta" is released every year on our associates farms.

We are more than ecological, it is the way we work and understand farming.

💥 Des de l`ADV ja fa temps que hem creat un Banc de Maquinària Compartida, on comptem amb algunes màquines que estan a disposició de les nostres sòcies i socis. 🚜🌿🧑🏻‍🌾
D``aquesta manera compartim despeses, manteniment i sobretot coneixement.

💚 Les màquines que es compren a través del Banc de Maquinària son aquelles que, malgrat ésser molt útils, s`empren amb poca freqüència a nivell d`explotació, comportant una despesa difícil d`amortitzar a nivell individual.

Aquesta setmana els tècnics de @saltguiu ens van fer una formació de la "Rinieri" per tal de ser més conscients del seu correcte funcionament, així com adaptar-la de manera correcta a cada cultiu, manteniment, etc.

Moltes gràcies @saltguiu per venir i compartir aquesta estona.

Seguim!
