Crops Research Programmes

Bioenergy research in Teagasc encompasses a diverse range of subject areas including energy crops and combustion (Oak Park), anaerobic digestion (Grange) and carbon sequestration (Johnstown Castle). The objective of the Teagasc bioenergy research programme is to develop viable non-food uses of crops in order to improve fuel security, maximise sustainability, introduce new revenue streams for farmers and stimulate rural development.

The Virtual Irish Centre for Crop Improvement brings together the most active crop and plant science research groups in Ireland to generate a critical mass of knowledge, expertise and resources of that will allow us to address the key challenges facing tillage and forage crop production in Irish agriculture.
