An investment of some €12.5 million in sustainable Irish forestry has been announced by the European Commission and the European Investment Bank.

Commissioner for Agriculture Phil Hogan, said that with controversy growing about monoculture and clear felling policies in Ireland it is a welcome support for the more sustainable “continuous cover forestry” projects which would better support biodiversity and landscapes and the challenges associated with climate change.

Following an investment of €320,000, Teagasc has today unveiled its newly-extended advisory office in Midleton, Co. Cork.

The investment in the extra office space was necessary as some of the staff who had moved from Farranlea Road in Cork in 2010 were accommodated in portacabins, according to Teagasc.

Serving a farming area which extends from Youghal to Kinsale, up to Ballinhassig and to Knockraha and Glanmire, the Teagasc office in Midleton deals with a range of dairy, drystock and tillage farmers.

The office’s activities include 18 farmer discussion groups, 11 of which are in the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine’s Knowledge Transfer Scheme.

In total there is some 284 farmers in discussion groups which are facilitated from this office, with around 150 discussion group meetings held on farms each year, Teagasc added.
