The Agricultural Panel (Irish: An Rolla Talmhaíochta) is one of five Vocational Panels which together elect 43 members of Seanad Éireann, the upper house of the Oireachtas (the legislature of Ireland). The Agricultural panel elects 11 Senators, at least 4 of whom must come from the Oireachtas members' nominees and another three must come from the nominating bodies' nominees.
