T Research - Spring 2010 Edition

The Spring Edition of T-Research, Teagasc's research and innovation magazine, is now available to download for free online. If you're not familiar with the publication T-Research "aims to disseminate to a wider audience some of the important scientific work being undertaken in Teagasc and in other collaborating research institutions". This edition features a host of great articles including a review of the impact of the economic downturn on part-time farmers, a look at a new vaccine system, details on Teagasc's new land cover and habitat maps and a great article on how researchers in Johnstone Castle (and their collaborators) are finding ways of protecting environmental water quality from microbial pathogens. I love this magazine, and find it incredible useful to show my Agricultural Science pupils that agriculture is a rich area of science. It's not just about "farming the land", but has a major effect on our lives. The work carried out by Teagasc is key to the future prosperity of the farming and food sector in Ireland.
