<p style="text-align: justify;">Agriculture practices have changed in the past years in Europe and need to be applied in the farms as the new green pacts and integrated practices, more precisely, a new transformation of agriculture and rural areas with the achievement of a neutral climate and reducing the chemical treatments and pollution from the field works.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p><h2 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Transformation in Agricultural Practices</span></h2><p style="text-align: justify;">A <a href="https://www.mdpi.com/2073-4395/10/10/1499" target="_blank" rel="noopener">circular economy</a> needs to be present also in agriculture businesses and to be targeted to more and more local deals. Organic farming is appreciated and supported by some governments, but we also need to think about intensive farming and how it can be sustainable because it is helping the food supply worldwide.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Integrated crop management in farms can include precision technology and implementation of <a href="https://iopscience.iop.org/article/10.1088/1755-1315/979/1/012009/pdf" target="_blank" rel="noopener">digitalization</a> which is also sustained by European funds and policies for better decisions and climate protection.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Agriculture is a very important chain in the bioeconomy and will help the circular and low-carbon economy as resources from crops, forests, animals, and microorganisms can produce food, materials, and energy.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Sustainable agriculture is a word that we hear more and more often in this branch, and it sounds good. However, the fact is that we need to include many factors like agronomical knowledge, soil protection, pest integrated management, biodiversity, environmental pollution, and poverty in the countryside areas.&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">Experts in agriculture can help restore and preserve ecosystems, particularly the capacity to adapt to climate change, land cultivation improvement, animal husbandry, processing, and marketing of agricultural food products in accordance with the rules of organic farming, and integrate, upgrading rural and suburban areas, preserving traditional material and spiritual values and respect international rules.</p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p><p style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 10pt;"><em>This article was contributed by our expert <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/sergiu-cioca-parasca-4074b7113/" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Sergiu Cioca Parasca </a></em></span></p><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p><h3 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 14pt;">Frequently Asked Questions Answered by Sergiu Cioca Parasca</span></h3><p style="text-align: justify;">&nbsp;</p><h2 style="text-align: justify;"><span style="font-size: 12pt;">1. What 2 agricultural inventions changed European society?</span></h2><p>The most important technical innovation for agriculture in the Middle Ages was the widespread adoption around 1000 of the mouldboard plows and its close relative, the heavy plow. These two plows enabled medieval farmers to exploit the fertile but heavy clay soils of northern Europe.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">2. What kind of agriculture is supported in Europe?</span></h2><p>Industrial agriculture is a dominant one in Europe, but the system puts pressure on the farms, animals, plants and environment. Here we have a lot of Pacts from the European Union like Green Deal, Farm to Fork, Local Food, Bioeconomical circular, Reducing Carbon footprint.</p><p>And very supportive is also the Associate way, for example small farms to go in association and sell big and better the agriculture production (milk, meat, cereals, vegetables etc.).</p><p>&nbsp;</p><h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">3. Is organic farming supported by the EU?</span></h2><p>Organic farming is a fast-growing area in EU agriculture, which is a direct result of increased consumer interest in organic products. In response to the challenges posed by this rapid expansion, and to provide an effective legal framework for the industry, the EU passed new legislation relating to the organic sector which applies from 1 January 2022.</p><p>Examples of the changes that made under the new organic legislation include:</p><p>a strengthening of the control system, helping to build further consumer confidence in the EU organics system; new rules for producers which will make it easier for smaller farmers to convert to organic production; new rules on imported organics to ensure that all organic products sold in the EU are of the same standard; a greater range of products that can be marketed as organic.</p><p>The new organic legislation is supported by the action plan for organic production in the EU, which was launched by the European Commission in March 2021.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><h2><span style="font-size: 12pt;">4. What is the European common agricultural policy?</span></h2><p>Europe&rsquo;s common policy in Agriculture is the (CAP) common agricultural policy which is about food, the environment, and the countryside.</p><p>The CAP is a partnership between society and agriculture that ensures a stable supply of food, safeguards farmers&rsquo; income, protects the environment and keeps rural areas vibrant.</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p><p>&nbsp;</p>
