This week, we hear from tillage farmer Kevin Nolan about what has been happening on-farm since his last video, along with his upcoming plans. Topics discussed in the video include:

  • Winter on a tillage farm.
  • Maintenance and repairs on machinery.
  • Plant counts and targets (seeds/plants per square metre).
  • Crop maintenance and management.
  • Pest control.
  • Winter ploughing.
  • If you have any questions for any of our case study farmers, feel free to email your questions to

    Throughout the 2020-2021 school year, the Irish Farmers Journal will be releasing videos from each of our case study farmers, where they will give us an update on their on-farm progress.

    By the end of the school year in 2021, each student who signs up for this year’s study guides will have access to five sector-by-sector mini case studies. You can visit for full details on how to sign up to this year’s programme, or email
