Smart Farming identifies €5,600 average cost savings on participating farms
And ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 9%
Smart Farming was a farm resource efficiency programme run by the Irish Farmers Association (IFA) in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from 2013 to 2022.
The success and the lessons learned from Smart Farming have paved the way for the development and implementation of other programmes now available to the farming sector, such as Teagasc Signpost and various co-operative-led agri-sustainability programmes.
Through Smart Farming, nearly 250 resource efficiency assessments were carried out on farms across Ireland, to support farmers to adopt practices to improve their resource efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions and reduce operational costs. The programme developed guidance notes for the eight thematic areas, delivered seminars and farm walks. While the Smart Farming programme has concluded, we invite you to access the resources and guidance materials which will be available until the end of 2023 on this website.
We extend our sincere appreciation to all the participating farmers and industry partners for their contributions to the Smart Farming Programme.
