How to improve spray efficiency in crops
This week Teagasc held the latest edition in the series of Crop Agronomy Webinars looking at different crops through the season. The question and answer sessions from the webinar are worth listening to again here in this podcast to assist your agronomy decisions over the next month.
The question and answer sessions from the webinar are worth listening to again as there is a lot of useful information which will help with your agronomy decisions over the next number of weeks.
Dermot Forristal and Francis Quigley, both from Teagasc, talk through the options for reducing drift control and how to select the correct nozzles, water rate and pressure. The experts also chat through how to get the best coverage in different crops.
John Pettit, a Teagasc advisor in Wexford, talked through management of winter cereals and he said the dry weather and the resulting lower disease pressure gives some scope to better tailoring fungicide spends this year.
Other crops also addressed in the webinar included beet beans and spring barley.
