The task is designed to create and implement an inexpensive, results-based approach to store, enhance and restore habitats in lowland intensive farmland without unduly impacting agricultural manufacturing.
Listed here particular goals will be perused:
-Develop, implement and assess options that are innovative restore, protect and enhance farmland habitats.
-Improve interaction and dissemination concerning the share of Irish farmland towards the preservation of biodiversity.
-Facilitate the creation of a demand that is market-based the agri-food industry for availability of ecosystem services from farmers.
The task aims to develop and implement an economical, results-based approach to save, enhance and restore habitats in lowland intensive farmland without unduly impacting agricultural production.
The next objectives that are specific be perused:
-Develop, implement and assess revolutionary choices to restore, protect and enhance farmland habitats.
-Improve interaction and dissemination in regards to the share of Irish farmland towards the preservation of biodiversity.
-Facilitate the creation of a market-based demand by the agri-food industry for method of getting ecosystem services from farmers.
Project tasks include:
creating a Biodiversity Management Arrange (BMP) in assessment with participating farmers that identifies priority actions for the maintenance/enhancement of farmland wildlife. Farm-based actions will target farmland habitats such as for example: hedgerow management, field margins, retention of cold temperatures stubble on cereal farms, skylark plots, riparian buffer strips, development of a permanent pond, preservation of existing farm habitats, indigenous woodlands, nest-box and bat-box installation, rodent control and control over invasive types.
Monitoring the diversity of vegetation kinds, flowers, bird, bats and pollinators, making use of set up a baseline and surveys that are ongoing.
