Malting Barley Conference 2021 – the Q&A panel session

Teagasc hosted a Malting barley webinar on Tuesday 23rd of February which covered many areas such as liquid nitrogen, cover crops, ramularia and the activities as part of the Teagasc Boortmalt joint programme. The questions and answers session is the focus of this week’s Tillage Edge podcast.

The questions and answers section was particularly interesting as there were some really interesting angles covered and it's worth listening to these again on this week’s Tillage Edge podcast.

The expert panel included Deirdre Doyle, Eoin Lyons, Stephen Kildea, Ciaran Hickey and Richie Hackett, all from Teagasc as well as Tom Bryan from Boortmalt.  The questions revolved around the topics on the webinar but also included questions about malting barley contracts, components of yield in barley, general barley disease control and more.
