A Review of 2022 for Tillage Farmers
Tillage farmers were part of a roller coaster year in 2022. The year started out with uncertainty due to high costs, then to very high grain prices in mid-year, then to lower plantings in the autumn and a falling grain market at present.
Ciarán Collins and Shay Phelan join Michael Hennessy on the latest Tillage Edge podcast to discuss the highs and lows of 2022 and pick out the lessons that can be learned along the way.
Ciarán talked about the uncertainty at the start of the year, especially during the first couple of months of the Ukraine war as costs were rocketing but grain was lagging behind.
Shay suggested one lesson we need to bring from 2022 is to use inputs more wisely, as was the case with chemical nitrogen and the use of organic manures.
