The impact of the rising cost of fertilisers on tillage farms
On this week’s episode of The Tillage Edge podcast Shay Phelan talks to Soil Specialist Mark Plunkett about the impact of the rising cost of fertilisers on tillage farms.
This increase in prices has led to a renewed interest in the use of organic manures on tillage farms. Mark discusses the value and costs of the different manures available, the practicalities of using them and the crops most likely to benefit the most from using organic manures.
Mark also discusses their impact in reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as overall fertiliser costs to the farmers.
