Over the last decade, the use of fertiliser on Irish farms has come under closer scrutiny.

With further restrictions on the horizon, the Irish Farmers Journal has put together a special webinar on fertiliser.

Irish Farmers Journal Fertiliser Webinar from Irish Farmers Journal on Vimeo.

Dairy editor Aidan Brennan explained the different rates and measurements that can often be very confusing – even for the experts.

Aidan, along with beef editor Adam Woods and sustainability editor Siobhan Walsh, went through the fertiliser requirements for silage, grazing and soil fertility build-up on dairy and drystock farms.

Jack Kennedy had a chat with Teagasc soils specialist Mark Plunkett about some of the new developments in fertiliser, including protected urea and biostimulants.
