Success for Pollination Project in Antrim

Posted on: 3rd August 2018

A simple change in mowing has provided a fantastic success in a pollination project Ballymena.

More than 60 rare orchids have been found in a wildflower meadow created by a County Antrim school.

The Irish Lady's Tresses were found at Cambridge House Grammar School in Ballymena. There are only 2,000 of the flowers to be found in Europe.

Northern Ireland is home to most of them.

The school set aside an area near its playing fields two years ago as part of a project to encourage pollinators.

DAERA seeks views on a future agricultural policy framework for NI

Posted on: 2nd August 2018

The Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) is to engage with the wider farming, food and environmental sectors on a possible future agricultural policy framework for Northern Ireland (NI).

Following any agreed transition period, the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) will no longer apply to NI once the UK leaves the European Union, and therefore the views of stakeholders are being sought on a ‘Future Agricultural Policy Framework’ document to help shape the debate on future support arrangements for NI.
