It's not just up to farmers to reduce climate emissions in Ireland according to a local Green Party representative.
Catherine Joseph believes other sectors such as production, industry and transport must be held to the same standards as farmers.
Local agricultural groups have argued that farmers are having the finger pointed at them when it comes to environmental impact.
The Longford representative says we can't delay climate action any longer as environmental effects are beginning to be felt here.
Coalition leaders have agreed an emissions cut for the agriculture sector of 25 per cent.
Talks had stalled in recent days with Agriculture Minister Charlie McConalogue seeking a 24 per cent reduction and Environment Minister Eamon Ryan looking for 26 per cent.
In the end they split the difference between the two.
Speaking to Let's Talk today she said it's vital these measures are agreed and put into action soon:
"It's not only the agricultural sector that is getting this target but all the other sectors including domestic and transport and all other areas will also have this set target, everyone will be responsible for it.
I just think if people are worried, they shouldn't be worried. Do the right thing and a stitch in time, saves nine."
