Farmers who participated in the Smart Farming initiative in 2020 identified average greenhouse gas emission reductions of 9 per cent and cost savings of €5,600, according to the Irish Farmers' Association (IFA).

Smart Farming is a voluntary resource efficiency programme led by the IFA in partnership with the Environmental Protection Agency.

IFA president Tim Cullinan said programmes like Smart Farming that work with farmers to deliver change at farm level had never been so important. "Smart Farming demonstrates that improving efficiency can deliver significant cost savings as well as emission reductions, without negatively impacting productivity on farms," he said.

"Smart Farming connects farmers with professional agronomists who provide the latest advice under the eight thematic areas, including grassland management, soil fertility, energy use and feed management."
