EIT Food Regenerative Agriculture Programme

Donau Soja, in collaboration with EIT Food, will support agricultural producers in adopting regenerative agricultural practices.

EIT Food strategically supports the transition to regenerative agricultural practices in Europe at the farm level to meet goals related to climate change, the need for food supply security, and the protection of our arable land through the ‘EIT Food Regenerative Agriculture Programme’, which offers a comprehensive training and advisory programme to help farmers acquire knowledge about the principles of regenerative agriculture and their further application on their farms.

In collaboration with Donau Soja, EIT Food enables agricultural producers from the territory of the Republic of Serbia to participate in the ‘EIT Food Regenerative Agriculture Programme’.

We invite farmers to apply via the registration link.

Since the number of places is limited, selected agricultural producers will be informed by 10.04.2024. about their participation in the training. If you need assistance with filling out the registration form or have additional questions about the training, please call: +381 63 111 5136.
