Venue Lyrath Kilkenny
This year’s National Tillage Conference is on in the Lyrath Hotel Kilkenny on Wednesday 30th January. In ‘Responding to Future Challenges’, the 2019 conference will highlight the most relevant research currently underway in response to the primary challenges facing the tillage sector. The conference will include presentations on:
- Crop protection strategies in to the future
- The potential consequences of Brexit both from a farm gate and sectoral perspective
- Grass weed control: Utilising all the tools
- The potential of genetic resistance to offset cereal diseases
Audience engagement will be maximised using a live on-line conference tool to capture stakeholder’s questions and concerns, which will form the basis for three separate panel/presenter discussions through the day. In addition, there will be a series of 5 minute snapshot presentations capturing a diverse range of research projects from Integrated Pest Management through to more fundamental studies that enhance our understanding of plant-stress interactions.
