Money for trials and development 2014

Published: 09 October 2013

November 1 is the dead-line for applications to the Swedish Board of Agriculture. There will be approximately 6 million SEK for new applied experiments and development projects within the area of agriculture and environment.

The Swedish Board of Agriculture has developed a new framework for trials and development projects for the period 2013–2020. The framework programme is based on the National environmental objectives:

  • A Non-Toxic Environment
  • Zero Eutrophication
  • A Varied Agricultural Landscape
  • Reduced Climate Impact

Within each environmental objective projects in both conventional and organic production can fit. Questions specific to organic production are to be found under the title "A Varied Agricultural Landscape."
