DECLAN Byrne, the Project Manager of the SUAS Pilot Project in the Wicklow Uplands, has contributed to the Tegasc Signpost Series.
The Teagasc Signpost Series is presented online in association with Dairy Sustainability Ireland, Food Drink Ireland Skillnet and the National Rural Network.
The sustainable agriculture webinar aims to point a way to low emissions agriculture and features presentations from a number of agri-professionals, including Mr Byrne.
Titled, 'The Future Of Uplands Management - Lessons From SUAS', the free online event included an opportunity for questions and answers following the presentation, and promises to offer great insights discovered through the implementation of the five year project.
Launched in 2018 by Wicklow Uplands Council, the SUAS Pilot Project addresses some of the complex challenges associated with the land management of commonages and hill farms in the Wicklow/Dublin uplands.
Since its first episode in the early days of the first lockdown, in April 2020, the weekly series has gone from strength to strength, regularly attracting over 400 participants.
Broadcasting episodes every Friday morning from 9.30 a.m. to 10.30 a.m., the series covers environmental topics such as climate change, biodiversity, soil health, nutrient management and water quality.
