Sustainability is key to reducing greenhouse gas emissions from Irish agriculture. These events are designed to help agri-professionals communicate the best evidence-based advice and guidance to their clients. By working together, the agricultural industry can make major steps towards reducing the environmental footprint of Irish agriculture.
