Project designation: PROBIOMADEIRA – reinforcement of the technical scientific knowledge necessary to adapt and optimize local conditions for the practice of production systems in Organic Agriculture.

Project code: M1420-01-0247-FEDER-000014

Main goal: Having identified the potential and possible difficulties and gaps to overcome to enhance production systems in Organic Agriculture, the proposed project aims to strengthen the technical scientific knowledge necessary for the adaptation and optimization of local conditions to the set of cultures that will prove to be of greater economic interest in Region.

Intervention region: Autonomous Region of Madeira

Beneficiary: New Organic Planet, Ltd.

Approval date: 25-05-2018
Start date: 01-04-2018
Date of the conclusion: 31-03-2020
Total eligible cost: 698,580.07 Euros
FEDER: 415,423.75 Euros
Regional Public Support: 104 787.0105 Euros

Goals: The proposed project intends to reinforce the technical scientific knowledge, necessary for the adaptation and optimization of local conditions to the set of cultures that will prove to be of greater economic interest in the Region. For this purpose, the potential and possible difficulties and gaps to be overcome in order to enhance production systems in organic production with a high level of productivity and interesting profitability for the farmer will be identified.

Activities (expected/achieved results):

  1. Survey of edaphic-climatic information on the island of Madeira
  2. Characterization of representative agricultural systems
  3. Identification and characterization of systems in organic production mode
  4. Identification of the main sources of organic matter and evaluation of the economic viability of its transformation/processing, commercialization and distribution throughout the island's territory.
  5. Proposal of adapted methods and practices for the maintenance and/or increase of soil fertility.
  6. Definition of guidelines for the development of a platform that brings together the entire chain in organic production mode on the island of Madeira
  7. Production of a manual of good practices for the conservation and fertility of Madeira's soils (on paper in the form of a brochure and online).
