Smart Farming Spring Seminar 2021
The Smart Farming programme is a voluntary resource efficiency programme which focuses on eight key areas that offer the greatest savings to farmers and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions at farm level.
The programme aims to save participants €5,000 through introducing resource efficiency measures on their farm, and reduce GHG emissions by 5-7%.
The 2021 Smart Farming Spring Seminar was held online via Microsoft Teams and the theme of the event is “Restore & Enhance Farmland”.
The MC for the seminar was Paul O’Brien, Smart Farming Leader and Chair of the IFA National Environment and Rural Affairs committee.
