Project Title: The role and value of Teagasc/ Industry Joint Programmes for KT – lessons from the Tipperary Co-Op Joint Programme.
This project examined the 3 different participation levels within Joint Programmes – High, Medium and Low participation levels. It examined what effect each participation level had on the adoption of new farming practices and technologies, while also researching how much knowledge a farmer gained from participating within the Joint Programme. The final part of the study involved identifying Teagasc’s, the industry’s and the farmers views of the Joint Programme.
