While much research has been carried out on the role of soil survey in
the application of agricultural technology to farming, its possible utility
as a basis for systematizing statistics on farm size has not been investigated.
Against the above background, the objectives of the present study are to
(1) examine the extent of major land units in Ireland with particular
reference to regional variation
(2) evaluate the productivity of the lowland soils for livestock production,
(3) examine the relationship (if any) between holding size and soil
(4) investigate the number of holdings on each soil association that
have a capacity to support selected stocking targets,
(5) investigate the reduction in holdings which would be necessary
on each soil association to create units capable of suppoitmg
the selected stocking target, assuming that holdings below the
stocking target were restructured to bring them up to the selected
target while those above it were assumed to remain unchanged.
