Crops forum continues online tomorrow
The Teagasc Crops Forum will continue online tomorrow night (September 17). This week’s focus is on policy and challenges coming down the tracks for the tillage sector.
The first topic up for discussion is the Green Deal and the Farm to Fork Strategy. A representative from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine will make a presentation and hopefully give some indication of what might be involved in these new plans and give tillage farmers a chance to listen to suggestions and make some of their own.
The chairperson of the Teagasc Tillage Stakeholders Group Donal Fitzgerald will make the final presentation of the evening when he speaks on the Crops 2030 report which was published last month.
The event will be held from 6:30pm to 7:30pm and anyone wishing to log in should register on the Teagasc website.
