MORE farmers than ever will die in accidents on their land this year, it was warned yesterday.
Eight agriculture workers have already lost their lives since January and the busy summer season has not started yet.
National Irish Safety Organisation president John O'Shaughnessy said: "As harvesting begins of turf turf: see lawn.
In horticulture, the surface layer of soil with its matted, dense vegetation, usually grasses grown for ornamental or recreational use. , silage silage (sī`lĭj) or ensilage (ĕn`səlĭj), succulent, moist feed made by storing a green crop in a silo. The crop most used for silage is corn; others are sorghum, sunflowers, legumes, and grass. , crops or fruit, all farms have a responsibility to put safety at the top of their agenda.
The reality is that many are ignoring the message and I fear that this year we will see the highest number ever of agriculture related deaths and injuries."
He added young people working over the summer with little farm experience need to be vigilant.
