Fred Townsend, Teagasc Nursery Stock Lecturer and Dónall Flanagan, Teagasc Nursery Stock Advisor will be joined by John Murphy, Owner of Annaveigh Nursery for a demonstration of skills, discussion and a walk through some of the selection of trees being screened for suitability for climate change.
There will be a demonstration of a Clemens mechanical weeder which is now being used in tree nurseries in Ireland.
