National Farm Survey Report 2006

The National Farm Survey is designed to collect and analyse information relating to farming activities as its primary objective. Information and data relating to other activities by the household are considered secondary and as such where this information is presented it should be interpreted with caution. For 2006 there are 1159 farms included in the analysis, representing 113,100 farms nationally. The population is based on the CSO 2005 Farm Structures Survey with farm typology based on the 2002 Standard Gross Margins (SGM).

Pig Manure as a Low Cost fertiliser

Pig manure can be an excellent source of plant nutrients including Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P) and Potassium (K). It can be used to replace much of the chemical fertiliser required to fertilise grassland and crops and produce very substantial reductions in fertiliser costs.

Soil Geochemical Atlas of Ireland

The information contained in this Soil Geochemical Atlas of Ireland is summarised from data collected between 1995 and 2006 during a countrywide geochemical survey conducted as part of the ‘National Soil Database’ project. The full report of that project is available from the EPA (Fay et al. 2007a) and it covers the sampling and analysis methods, as well as all the results and interpretation, in detail. A synthesis report is also available, which covers the objectives and outcomes of the project in summarised form (Fay et al. 2007b). A summary of the National Soil Database project including the project background, main findings, materials and methods and statistical analysis, is provided in this atlas. The main focus of this atlas is to present the geochemical maps and to interpret the information presented in them. The sections in this Atlas preceding the geochemical maps are intended as background information to aid the interpretation of the maps. In the map section, each element measured is shown separately. A short description of the element and an interpretation of its distribution in Ireland accompany the spatial distribution and data point maps for each element. The description of the element provides background information such as occurrence of the element in the environment and its applications and uses, any known biological roles, deficiencies or toxicities for plant and animal health and potential environmental risks.
