How can you, your business or community get involved in International Year of Plant Health 2020

Added 23.03.20

Plant health is increasingly under threat. Climate change, and human activities, have altered ecosystems, reducing biodiversity and creating new niches where pests can thrive. At the same time, international travel and trade has tripled in volume in the last decade and can quickly spread pests and diseases around the world causing great damage to native plants and the environment.

The Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine would like to encourage you to become involved in raising the awareness of plant health and the importance of Ireland’s protected zones.

Why not plan an event within your community to spread the word?  The UN FAO (Food and Agriculture Organisation) has a webpage of ideas for activities and photo competitions that you may also wish to get involved in.

We have provided you below with a promotional poster and email signature for use.

Please check out the attached leaflet and if we can be of further assistance please do not hesitate to contact your local inspector (details on the attached leaflet).
