Teagasc's 'TResearch Autumn 2019' quarterly magazine features research published in the International Journal of Agricultural Management on the topic of ‘Generational Renewal in Agriculture’ by Dr Shane Conway, Dr John McDonagh and Dr Maura Farrell in the Discipline of Geography's Rural Studies Research Unit at NUI Galway calling for policy makers to understand the 'language of farming', and also to value the older generation of the farming community's 'way of life' on their farms in later life when devising future farm transfer strategies (p.32-33). A piece by Dr Brian Leonard and colleagues at NUI Galway and Teagasc exploring farmer perceptions of risk in farm succession is also featured in this edition (p.34-35).
