The Tipp farmer looking after his soils
In the first Tillage Edge podcast for 2022, Michael Hennessy talks to Will Stokes, a tillage farmer in Tipperary, who is participating in the Signpost Farm programme.
Will and his Teagasc advisor, Conor Kavanagh, discuss how Will is making changes on his farm, particularly around caring for the soils.
Will is focused on building soil reserves of P & K and as part of that imports organic manures each year. He recently undertook GPS soil sampling to more accurately target nutrient gaps and, he says, finds the information particularly useful to making better decisions for the farm.
