This year’s National Tillage Conference will take place virtually over two days, it has been confirmed. The annual event, organised by Teagasc, will take place online on Thursday, January 13 and Thursday, January 27 at 11.30 a.m.

The first webinar, on Thursday, January 13, will look at managing crop nutrition. Researchers will present findings to support tillage farmers’ decision-making for the 2022 season. The session will also consider the options to cut fertiliser usage, strategies to split applications if supplies tighten further, soil testing and spring cropping options. 

Meanwhile, the webinar on Thursday, January 27, will focus on cereal disease control against the backdrop of reduced nutrient management scenarios.

Building on session one, the second part of the tillage conference will focus on considerations for cereal disease control against the backdrop of reduced nutrient management scenarios, while attendees will also hear from researchers detailing the most up-to-date outputs from the current BYDV and grassweeds surveillance initiatives.
