Teagasc Director, Professor Frank O'Mara
Statement to the Joint Committee on Housing, Local Governmant and Heritage - April 7th, 2022.
Water quality and in particular minimising the impact of agriculture has been a priority area for Teagasc for many years. We have a large body of water quality research which is largely centred around the Agricultural Catchments Programme (ACP) which started in 2008 and is funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. In addition to our core advisory activities which provide general advice on water quality we have a dedicated Agricultural Sustainability Support and Advisory Programme (ASSAP) which works with farmers in a free and confidential advisory service to help improve water quality.
