Polish farming update with Tim Bergin
The latest Tillage Edge podcast catches up again with Tim Bergin who is a Dubliner farming in north Poland.
Tim talks about how the conflict in Ukraine has affected his business and the locality.
Despite being over 1,000 km from the Ukraine border, there are substantial numbers of Ukrainians in the locality and Tim commented that the Polish government is doing an excellent job catering for these displaced people.
Tim said the dry and cold weather to date has reduced growth and crops are approximately three weeks behind where they would normally be at this time of the year.
Planting is not completed and Tim had decided not to grow potatoes in 2022 up to last week but an improved offer by the potato industry in the past few days has changed his mind.
