With a farming heritage that extends back over 200 years, Ireland is also at the forefront of agricultural innovation today.
Not only does Ireland offer one of the world’s most productive agricultural systems, its conditions are an ideal test bed for farming machinery that is used in every part of the world.
The agritech industry worldwide is quickly and constantly evolving. In Ireland, research and development is government funded and backed by world-class agricultural science and technology university programmes.
Irish farming produce feeds the world
Thanks to this farming pedigree, Ireland produces enough food for seven times its population, including 10% of the world’s infant milk formula. The country’s beef and milk output are famous worldwide, while 15 tonnes of dry matter are produced per hectare of grass. 81% of Ireland’s agricultural land is used for silage, hay, and pasture.
Furthermore, Irish innovations like zero-grazing technology have been adopted around the world, while the country’s manufacturers are constantly breaking ground for the next generation of farming.
