National Farm Survey - 2021 Sustainability Report

17 October 2022
Type Report

This report provides the latest available information on the sustainability performance of farms in Ireland, based on detailed analysis of data collected through the Teagasc National Farm Survey. Economic, Social, Environmental and Innovation sustainability dimensions are measured for Dairy, Cattle, Sheep and Tillage farms in 2021.

The report also includes time series results over several years, which allows an assessment of how farm sustainability has changed temporally. Note that methodological changes have led to the revision of results for earlier years. This means that previously published figures for earlier years are now superseded by the revisions published in this report. In general, the revisions are larger for the dairy system than for the other systems.
