Kildalton Open Source Sustainable Farm Open Day
At this Teagasc / Glanbia event on the 5th of July, ACP manager Eddie Burgess presented some key research findings from the six catchments at a stand on water quality. A summary of some chemical and ecology metrics were shown which highlighted key differences between the catchments. For example, the two Wexford sites have contrasting water phosphorous levels due to important differences in soil type. In addition, Joe Crockett Co-ordinator National Dairy Sustainability Initiative spoke about the key drivers of water quality for the dairy industry and farmers.
