Malting barley in 2022 – your questions answered by experts

This week’s Tillage Edge podcast revisits the questions and answers from the Malting Barley Webinar which was held on February 10th. A panel of experts from Teagasc, Boortmalt and Teagasc, as well as farmers, answered questions that were asked by attendee farmers during the webinar.

The session covers nitrogen applications for this season, how cover crops can be incorporated into malting barley production and also sustainability issues of producing malting barley.  

Dr Gary Lanigan from Teagasc told the webinar that it’s very possible for a 100 hectare malting barley producer to be net zero for carbon.
