Ministers are holding a special cabinet meeting this Monday to adopt the all-Government climate plan prepared by Minister for Climate Action Richard Bruton, which is expected to include changes to farming practices such as land use, fertilisation and livestock breeding and feeding for the next decade.

Minister Bruton has previously said that the plan would set a specific target for farming within the overall obligations agreed for Ireland at EU level across agriculture, heating and transport, taken together as the so-called effort-sharing sector.
