Introduction to Organic Sector
Organic horticultural production in Ireland takes place on holdings varying from intensive market gardening enterprises, with production of high value crops, e.g. tunnel production, to field scale operations with a high level of mechanisation. Field scale production is limited to areas of good arable soils with a suitable climate, with most production occurring in the midlands or south east. Intensive production, particularly tunnel production, is possible in a wider range of areas.
