A book marking 50 years of agriculture development in Ireland was launched last month. The book entitled Growing Knowledge was formally launched by the Minister for Agriculture and Food, Brendan Smith. The new tome catalogues the achievements of Teagasc, the agriculture and food development authority and its predecessor An Foras Talúntais since 1958.
Stalker is sure that the new book will be a riveting read for all those interested in the course and development of food over the past 50 years on the island of Ireland. No doubt things have changed beyond all recognition in most aspects of food production since the late '50s.
