I'm curious as to what schemes you would implement in the Agri sector?
I haven't seen much comment about 'the sector that saved the economy' from yourselves

The Social Democrats understand that Agriculture and the Agri-Food sector must be supporter as a key indigenous industry, a major employer and one of our biggest exporters. Our priorities are to create a green certification process to brand Irish produce, enhance the continued viability of the family farm by encouraging greater participation in agricultural co-operatives, provide support to small scale family farms by increasing the microgenerating capacity of their farms through small-scale wind, solar and other forms of clean energy generation, as well as encouraging wide scale participation in the GLAS scheme. You can read more about our agriculture policies in our manifesto here on Page 43.
