The Tillage Edge

This is the first of four episodes looking at protein production in Ireland and how it can be developed over the next number of years.  
In Part 1 of the series, Michael Hennessy chats to Ciaran Collins, a Tillage Specialist in Teagasc, about the profitability of beans in 2023 and how to grow a high yielding crop.
Ciaran told the podcast he expects beans to be twice as profitable as spring barley in 2023 with the increased profitability helped by a larger EU protein payment.  
Where planting is concerned, Ciaran said farmers should check seed TGW before planting as these can vary widely between seed lots.
