Farming in Mayo

The rural and coastal areas of Mayo are home and workplace to a large proportion of the people of Mayo. Agriculture is the primary land-use in the county and the economy relies heavily on this sector.

The rural and coastal areas are also the location of major natural resources as well as our major recreational, amenity, tourist and archaeological resources.

This Section of our website contains information to support farmers in protection of the environment.

Cross Compliance (Document)

This workbook has been developed by Teagasc to educate farmers about their obligations underCross Compliance. It aims to assist farmers in identifying potential issues on their farm. This user guide does not cover every Cross Compliance question. A full list of the DAFM checklists for each Statutory Management Requirement (SMR) is available on the DAFM website. Further details are available at or from your local Teagasc office.
