Trace Elements and Heavy Metals in Irish Soils

This volume consists of a compilation of existing collated information on trace elements/heavy metals in soils, plants and food. Information presented in the past by Johnstown Castle staff that is largely relevant to Ireland is reproduced here. Papers published in scientific journals have not been included although, of course, the information enclosed herein is largely derived from them. Articles were part of the output from an active programme on trace elements/heavy metals that has now all but ended. Much of this information still exists in hard copy but is becoming less easy to access and is in danger of being lost. This information is as relevant today as when it was first compiled.

World Agricultural Trade Reform and the WTO Doha Development Round: Analysis of the Impact on EU and Irish Agriculture

This study is presented as a contribution to the debate surrounding the ongoing World Trade Organisation (WTO) agriculture negotiations. The study presents a baseline (status quo) view of the agriculture sector over the next ten years and contrasts this with a number of hypothetical WTO reform scenarios. FAPRI-Ireland has no policy advocacy role and the format of these scenarios should not be inferred as an expectation, or recommendation, in relation to the eventual outcome of the WTO negotiations. The report is produced by staff at the Rural Economy Research Centre, Teagasc, in conjunction with our partners in the Food and Agricultural Policy Research Institute (FAPRI) at the University of Missouri in the USA.
