BASE Ireland is part of an International community of farmers, agronomists and agriculture professionals who are committed to advancing the knowledge and practice of Conservation Agriculture. All members agree to abide by a few simple soil care principles:
1. Minimal disturbance (non-inversion) of soil to establish crops.
2. Permanent organic soil cover with crop residue and/or living plants.
3. The adoption of diverse rotations and cover cropping.
The primary objective of the organisation is the development of sustainable, farmer led and profitable farming practice. We aim to empower members in decision making through the committed sharing of techniques, on farm learnings, information and ideas. Members are further encouraged to host farm visits and openly share their experiences.If you have an interest in joining BASE Ireland, then please feel free to make contact.
