Agricultural Catchments Programme

Protecting and improving water quality and supporting the production of high-quality food are the twin aims of the Agricultural Catchments Programme.

The Agricultural Catchments Programme, funded by the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and run by Teagasc works with 300 farmers across six catchments to evaluate the environmental and economic effects of the NAP measures implemented under the Nitrates Directive.

The programme aims to maximize its effectiveness by encouraging farmer participation and disseminating information from the programme to a wide audience.
