AGRICULTURAL OBSERVATIONS

Research
Met Éireann coordinates the AGMET group which has members from agricultural research institutes, universities, government departments and other organizations interested in the effects of weather on agriculture. The AGMET group was founded in 1984 with the aims of:

  1. promoting the dissemination of weather information for planning and decision making in agriculture
  2. the provision of educational material to facilitate the best use of weather information in agriculture
  3. development of modelling expertise exemplified in the AGMET publication 'Agro-Meteorological Modelling - Principles, Data and Applications' N.M. Holden (Ed.)

Met Éireann provided forecasts and guidance to the Department of Agriculture on the airborne spread of the Foot and Mouth Disease Virus in the outbreak of 2001. During that time research was undertaken to improve the airborne dispersion model and results have been published in a technical report.
