ABSTRACT
The article reports on the call by the Irish Farmers' Association (IFA) for the government to introduce a bioenergy and renewables plan to help Ireland achieve its greenhouse gas emission and reduction obligations. Agriculture has a role to play in emissions reduction, according to IFA environment and rural affairs chairman Harold Kingston. He noted that such a plan must include improved Renewable Energy Feed in Tariff (REFIT) and the development of end-use markets for renewable crops.
