Plant-Based Agriculture

Plant-based agriculture includes the growing of food crops such as vegetables, fruit, nuts, grains, legumes and mushrooms, as well as crops such as hemp, biofuels and ornamentals.

We import far more food crops than we actually grow here at home, so there is scope for development in the home-grown market.  We need to establish a large horticultural sector substituting imported foods for foods that can be grown in Ireland.
