“A co–ordinated and joined up strategy on land management will help to ensure that agriculture and the environment can flourish in tandem.”

That was the key message from Agriculture and Environment Minister Michelle McIlveen today as she received a report on “Sustainable Agricultural Land Management Strategy”.

The report was compiled by an expert working group, consisting of farmers, environmentalists, officials and food processors, chaired by Dr John Gilliland. This is the first report of its kind for Northern Ireland, providing a number of recommendations on how best to support productive agriculture whilst improving environmental performance.

Speaking at the event at AFBI, Hillsborough, Miss McIlveen said: “I wish to thank the members of the expert working group for their work in producing this strategy document under the chairmanship of Dr John Gilliland.

“Today marks another step forward in the implementation of the Agri Food Strategy Board’s ‘Going for Growth’ report. The Sustainable Agricultural Land Management Strategy is a first for Northern Ireland and is linked to recommendation 22 of ‘Going for Growth’, which called for a strategic regional land management policy.”
