We continue to build strong educational relationships with Irish Universities and Institutes of Technology.
We are also involved in educational initiatives such as Agri Aware and IASTA to get primary and secondary level students interested in agriculture and its role in society.
The ASA would like to gratefully acknowledge and thank all our sponsors over the last twelve. Without your support we could not deliver the services to our members and be the success that we are today.
