Teagasc (meaning "instruction" in Irish) is the semi-state authority in Ireland responsible for research and development, training and advisory services in the agri-food sector. The authority has a number of county advisory centres, colleges and research centres in which it carries out its main business. The Teagasc headquarters are located in the "Oak Park Estate" in Carlow.

The official title of the body is Teagasc - The Agriculture and Food Development Authority. In 1988 Teagasc succeeded An Foras Taluntais/The Agricultural Institute (AFT) which was responsible for agricultural research, and An Chomhairle Oiliúna Talmhaíochta/The Agricultural Training Council (ACOT) which was responsible for education and advisory services.
