The development of the Irish tomato industry

, : The development of the Irish tomato industry. Acta Horticulturae (25): 231-240

The development of the Irish glasshouse tomato industry is outlined, followed by details of climate, area under glass, location, output, costs of production, and protection. Market channels are then examined. The home market takes by far the largest proportion of the production. Exports to Northern Ireland have been growing over the last ten years but are still only a fraction of home consumption. Sales to Great Britain are very small and of recent origin.
