Every year the Northern Ireland Ministry of Agriculture issues statistics of the acreage under various crops and of the livestock population of the country. These figures really amount to a kind of stocktaking of the industry in Ulster. Tonight Peter Fitzpatrick will deal with these figures and do a little stocktaking himself.
He will also discuss the prospects for the next International Ploughing Match. The first match was held early this year at Limavady and its remarkable success was one of the outstanding features of the agricultural year. The second International Ploughing Match will be held at Antrim next February.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
