Räpi experimental farm

In Apetit’s experimental farm Räpi, peas, swede parsnip, carrot, spinach, celeriac, sugar beet are farmed. In its Baltic Sea Commitment, Apetit focuses on researching soil health and carbon sequestration in Räpi as well as including the best verified farming methods in its contract farmer’s responsible farming methods. In addition, Apetit trains all of its contract farmers to methods that improve soil health and carbon sequestration.

Soil health in focus

Improving soil health improves carbon sinks and cuts nutrient run-off into water bodies. So, regenerative farming helps the Baltic Sea on two ways: by mitigating climate change and by minimizing nutrient load.

In Apetit, we have worked long-term with Responsible Farming methods. Räpi experimental site is well prepared for researching farming methods. Carbon Action is an important project regarding the societal impact on the environment, and it’s great to be involved in producing research information on farming by sustainable development.
