Advising for Sustainable Food Production as an Island

Monday 16 August 2021

Online

With agriculture accounting for 65% of land use in the Republic of Ireland, and 75% in Northern Ireland farming practice has a significant influence on environmental outcomes. Knowledge transfer and the provision of advice has been identified as a key mechanism for encouraging environmentally friendly farming practices.

In recent years the main provider of advice in Northern Ireland, the College of Agriculture, Food and Rural Enterprise (CAFRE) has undertaken a restructuring of its advice provision. During this time CAFRE have tried to increase their relationship with the Teagasc Advisory Service to reflect the similar challenges faced by farmers and land managers in both jurisdictions, and the shared challenges in the border counties. These two organisations are not the only providers of advice, this is also carried out by farmers organisations, processors, ENGOs and within the private sector. This event brings together these organisations, as well as leading academics in the field of agricultural knowledge transfer to develop solutions, ambitions and shared practices to meet these challenges.

Brexit has resulted in a large degree of uncertainty for farmers either side of the border in terms of business practices, rules and regulations, and the provision of support and agri–environment schemes. As this uncertainty is likely to continue, marginally eased by the Northern Irish protocol, building practical collaboration and understanding across the border has never been more important, particularly as the environment does not recognise borders. This event brings together these organisations, as well as leading academics in the field of agricultural knowledge transfer to develop solutions, ambitions and shared practices to meet these challenges
