Day 1 of the National Crops Forum on varieties, septoria and grain markets

Day 1 of the National Crops Forum highlighted important information on varieties, septoria and grain markets which is worth listening to if you missed it the first time around. On this week’s Tillage Edge podcast you’ll hear the questions and answers between Michael Hennessy and the speakers.

The new varieties of winter barley, wheat and oats were discussed, as well as the influence of sowing dates on septoria control for the season with John Joe Byrne from the Department of Agriculture and Teagasc’s Stephen Kildea.

Phelim Dolan, from Comex McKinnon, shared his thoughts on the prospects for grain for the coming months. He strongly suggests all growers look closely at markets and take a profit when it’s there as it may not be around for long.

The full webinar can be found on the Teagasc Crops YouTube channel.
