Dairy expansion and fertiliser usage set to drive agri emissions up 9pc

Close

Agricultural greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are projected to increase by 9pc by 2030, relative to the 2005 baseline, unless action is taken, according to a new report from Teagasc.

This projected increase, highlighted by Teagasc, will be mainly driven by increased dairy cow numbers and fertiliser use on Irish farms.
