The September 2013 Teagasc Advisory Newsletter had a nice colour photograph of a contingent of Irish mushroom personnel at the energy neutral farm that was part of the Dutch Mushroom Days.
Pictured at the farm visit were Gerry Riley, Cathal Seery, Thomas Martin, CMP; Eugene Kiernan; Cathal Reilly; Pascal Seery; Michael McGovern , Chairman of CMP; David Coulter; and Tom Kellegher of Teagasc.
As reported before the event was well attended by the Irish contingent who were all very interested in the energy and climate neutral farm.
Dutch Farms are expected to be climate neutral by 2020. The rush to renewables continues apace, and what a pace.
Everyone who attended the conference was positively engaged in finding new and better ways to achieve the maximum from mushroom farming with the minimum of negative environmental impacts.
