AgNav, a new sustainability digital platform, which has been jointly developed by Teagasc, ICBF and Bord Bia, with the support of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine, is being showcased to thousands of farmers at the National Ploughing Championships.
AgNav provides farmers with accurate and verifiable farm specific figures to support decision making on their farms to help meet agriculture’s Climate Action.
As part of a joint Teagasc, Bord Bia, ICBF exhibition, farmers have the opportunity to get the Carbon number for their own individual farm. AgNav is being used by the new team of Teagasc Signpost Advisors, working with farmers to develop action plans for individual farmers to mitigate their Greenhouse gas emissions.
The platform is utilising the collective knowledge of Teagasc, Bord Bia and ICBF to provide data, decision-making support tools and guidance to farmers.
AgNav will support farmers to continue to improve productivity, ensure economic viability, while also setting new standards in terms of the environmental sustainability of their farms. It will help farmers put actions into play so that the sector can strive to achieve the targets that have been set for agriculture.
