A better environment and supporting the production of high-quality food are the twin aims of the ACP. Funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, staff have been working with 300 farmers across six catchments in Ireland for over ten years. The programme hosts a major conference every four years and the theme of Catchment Science 2019 was 'Achieving quality water in diverse and productive agricultural landscapes under a changing climate.'
Programme Chief Scientist Per-Erik Mellander describes how the high resolution monitoring of the water quality increases the understanding of nutrient loss
