As a New Zealander, Frank, I find your analysis of Irish agriculture depressingly familiar. Similar climates; similar green image camoflaging slack environmental practices. Similar industry-driven policy formation.

Whereas in France, for example, agricultural practice is evolving favorably under consumer pressure, such feedback is less of a factor in predominantly export-oriented production. Strong government/community leadership is required to get on a better trajectory.
