Projected Planner & making decisions off your grass wedge

Joseph Dunphy and John Douglas, Teagasc Grass10 start getting into more detail with your PastureBase grass wedge. Firstly they looked at the projected planner which helps you to run scenarios for your farm throughout the grazing season. They then looked at the other tools and targets for the different times of the year which will help to make better decisions when it comes to grazing management on your farm.

Rotation planners, grass budget & soil sampling

Joseph Dunphy and John Douglas, Teagasc Grass10 showed you how rotation planners help to plan certain areas to graze at different times of the year. The grass budget is also a very popular tool that aids in planning out grazing, particularly in the spring and autumn of the year. The team also introduced you to the soil sampling recording area on PastureBase which will lead us into the area of nutrient management in Friday’s session.

Fertiliser and slurry recording & clover management

Lastly on Friday, Joseph Dunphy and John Douglas, Teagasc Grass10 looked at nutrient management side of PastureBase Ireland which is becoming increasingly important as we move into an era of lower N use. The team started with showing you how to record slurry, chemical fertiliser, FYM and dairy washings on both the desktop and the app. They then showed you how to view the different reports to view total applications throughout a given year.

To finish they looked at the area of clover management where they showed you how to record different levels of clover in paddocks so as to leave it easier for N management throughout the year.
