National Tillage Conference 202029 January 2020 29 January 2020
Venue Lyrath Convention Centre, Co. Kilkenny
While the Tillage Sector is the lowest contributor of GHG emissions in Irish agriculture, the sector faces significant risks posed by the loss of important chemistries for pest/pathogen control and the need to further enhance sustainable practises.
In response, the 2020 Tillage Conference will provide up to date outputs from research investigating the management of fungal and viral cereal diseases plus the importance of genetics in breeding more nutrient efficient/stress resilient varieties.
The role of cover crops will be objectively discussed against the demands of future sustainability goals as will the rotational options heading into spring 2020.
Meanwhile, a specific workshop will see the launch of the next generation Teagasc Crop Report which will allow users to personalise the online platform to provide rapid access to agronomist strategies, the latest research and collated ag-chemical product information.
