Horticulture in Ireland
The Irish horticultural industry is an important economic sector in Ireland; the sector encompasses vegetables, fruits, ornamentals, flower bulbs, trees, mushrooms and protected crops. Within these sub-sectors, Teagasc research and development support this modern, progressive and dynamic sector in meeting the challenges ahead and capitalising on the opportunities of the future. This has culminated in a sector output valued at €477m farm gate. We work directly with all the sectors to advance their research agendas and meet the development needs as outlined in Food Wise 2025 and the Teagasc Statement of Strategy.
