April Crop Agronomy Webinar Q&A

Teagasc held the first in a series of Crop Agronomy Webinars this week looking at crops through the season. Presented by Ciaran Collins, the webinar Question and Answer sessions are worth a listen, as there is a lot of useful information to help with your agronomy decisions in the weeks ahead

On the Q&A, Dr Stephen Kildea, Teagasc, Oakpark, talked about yellow rust control in winter wheat and the necessity of early control in susceptible varieties. However Stephen also pointed out that this may make septoria control more difficult later in the season.

Veronica Nyhan, a tillage advisor in Laois, talked about herbicide resistance and how a farmer can rotate crops and herbicides to reduce the potential of resistance developing on farm.  

Plus there were other contributions from panellists on a wide range of agronomy issues including trace elements and wild oats control.
