The Irish land sector is crucial to the economy, according to a new report by the Irish Land Institute (ILI).
The report, entitled Irish Land and Economy: An Economic Perspective, also suggests that Ireland’s rural economy is more resilient to the economic downturn than some others.
“Ireland is an important place for the Irish land market to thrive, but it is also an important part of a larger ecosystem that is vital to the Irish rural economy,” said the report’s co-author, Simon Boulton.
The report was produced as part of an international study into the viability of Ireland’s agrarian sector, which is estimated to employ around 7,000 people in agriculture, forestry, fishing, aquaculture, forestry and mining.
The study is the latest in a series of studies into the sustainability of Irish agrariage and its potential for recovery.
It also examines how Ireland’s agricultural sector is affected by the downturn and how the country’s future could be influenced by the impact of Brexit.
“It is clear that Ireland needs to rethink its approach to land in a way that provides the best opportunities for growth and economic recovery for the long-term,” said Prof Boulston.
The land sector accounts for about 14% of the countrys total economic output.
Ireland is a major contributor to the global agricultural sector, with around 3.5 million hectares of agricultural land planted and harvested in 2017, according the Irish Farmers Federation.
The ILI’s report, which will be published on Tuesday, looks at the sustainability and potential for agriculture in the country.
It found that Irish land and agri-ecosystems are relatively resilient to a downturn in the agraria sector, although the sector is vulnerable to fluctuations in the supply of land.
“Agriculture is a vital part of Irelands economy.
It is a key driver of the economy,” Prof Bouston said.”
The economic downturn has had a substantial impact on the agricultural sector.”
In 2017, the number of farmers fell by 9.7 percent, but there was a significant increase in the number employed in the agriculture sector.
Agricultural workers also contribute to the fabric of society, and we must be prepared for the impact that Brexit will have on agriculture.
“The report recommends that Irish agri industry be reformed to better support and support small farmers.
Prof Boulson said Ireland needs more research on the impact on agriculture of Brexit and the wider impact on its agri sector.
It recommends that Ireland adopt measures to provide certainty on agri agri market conditions and to improve the resilience of Irish land.
Irish land sector, according ILI, is estimated by the Government to employ 6,800 people in farming, forestry; fishing, and aquacultural.
It provides employment to around 710,000 agricultural workers in Ireland.
It employs more than 7.4 million people in the fishing and aqua-fishing sectors.
It supplies around 1.2 million tonnes of fertiliser a year to the EU and the rest of the world.”
While this is a substantial contribution to the agri economy, there are other sectors of agriculture which need investment,” said Boulman.”
We know that the agricultural industry is a sector that has the potential to be very resilient, so there is much work to be done in the sectors where we are concerned.
