Farmer Tom Tierney explains his direct drill system

Tom Tierney, a farmer in North Kildare, who converted to a direct drill system six years ago and Ivan Whitten, his Teagasc Advisor, join Michael Hennessy on this week’s episode of The Tillage Edge podcast to discuss Tom’s farming system and how sustainability is at the core of all his decisions.

Teagasc have set up a network of farms, under the Signpost Programme banner, to help demonstrate sustainable practices and Tom Tierney is participating as one of these farms. Other farmers will get a chance in the coming year to visit Tom’s farm and explore his system as to where he is making gains around the environment and sustainability.
