In this week's podcast, Irish Farmers Journal specialists discuss Farm Safety Fortnight and crops and grass growth as well as Ireland's love affair with gardening.

As Farm Safety Fortnight gets under way, news correspondent Pat O'Toole asks buildings editor Paul Mooney to update us on the TAMS Farm Safety Scheme and on general progress towards safer farming around Irish yards.

Tillage editor Andy Doyle has been in the fields up and down the country and tells Pat what he has seen in terms of plant growth and health, as well as preparations for new spraying regulations and GLAS.

And as spring brings more people into the garden, Irish Country Living's consumer editor Ciara Leahy details how Ireland's gardeners have increased their spending by a whopping 22% in the past three years.
