Ministers McConalogue and Hackett announce two projects under the allocation of the Carbon Tax Fund

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue along with Minister of State Pippa Hackett have today announced that their Department is investing in two key projects that support the storing of carbon in our soils.


One of the projects will establish the extent of peat soil in agricultural management, whilst the second will monitor soil moisture levels to better understand the removal and loss of carbon from the soils. Both projects will help achieve the Government’s climate objectives, particularly in respect of grasslands on drained organic soils.
