Latest Crop Agronomy Webinar – Farmer Q&As
This week Teagasc hosted the first in a new series of Crop Agronomy webinars. The question and answer session is worth listening to again here. This episode of the Tillage Edge covers winter barley, winter oats and preparing for planting spring beans and spring barley for the coming season
This episode of the Tillage Edge covers winter barley, winter oats and preparing for planting spring beans and spring barley for the coming season. The questions asked by farmers were answered by an expert panel during the webinar.
Shay Phelan, a Specialist in Teagasc chaired an expert panel of Mark Plunkett, Ciaran Collins and Stephen Kildea, all from Teagasc, for the first round of questions.
Clarity was given as to the criteria which farmers should look for before applying early nitrogen to crops and also the level and timings of plant growth regulators on winter oats.
Winter barley disease control is covered in some depth by Stephen Kildea. Stephen stressed growers should aim to avoid stressing barleys at early growth through the applications of herbicides/PGR, etc. as this stress may induce more Ramularia in crops in June.
