It has been a busy few weeks on the three Teagasc Tillage BETTER farms, just like every other farm around the country. Crops grew rapidly over the last few weeks so timing of input applications has been critical. Some critical decisions have been made on crops and the results of these will only be known when the combines come in from the fields. Rain last weekend was very welcome in some areas, especially in north Duiblin where low rainfall levels in April and May left some crops under pressure.
