The Teagasc Tillage Crops Reports give the up to date disease, pest and growth status of crops as well as recommendations for treatment.
They also provide detailed comparisons of plant protection products in tabular format.
Reports carry updates on the new legislative - Sustainable Use Directive of Pesticides/Integrated Pest Management - requirements for pesticide recommendations/application/records.
Reports also provide;
- detailed crop nutritonal recommendations
- detailed recommendations on the husbandry of forage crops including maize and brassicas, and grassland weed control
- developments on renewable energy
Reports are checked to be cross compliant for Pesticide and Nitrates regulations.
Crops Reports will issue every 3 weeks during the growing season. A seed supplement will be issued in July, an Autumn Crops Report in September and a final Harvest Report will be issued in December.
Photographs of current developments e.g. images of problems, growth stages etc. are also included in each report.
