Ireland Agriculture

Ireland flag and potato field

Ireland’s mild climate and lush soil helps agriculture contribute €7bn to the national economy, accounting for almost 6% of employment.

Irish agriculture is predominantly grass-based, with just 9% of the agricultural land devoted to crop production. Production of cereals is worth €102m per annum, wheat and barley being the major crops grown, alongside potatoes.
