Completing a nutrient management plan
This week the Tillage Edge chats to Eoin Lyons, the Teagasc Boortmalt Joint Programme Advisor, who explains why it is critical that tillage farmers get a nutrient management plan completed for 2022.
Eoin goes through the process of creating a nutrient management plan and the time involved and he says where a farm is already mapped in the NMP online system, then a nutrient management plan could be created for a typical tillage farm in about 30-40 minutes.
Eoin outlines the outputs from the NMP which include a shopping list of fertilisers, lime and P&K maps, etc. which the farmer can view on paper or on their phone.
