These seminars promise to showcase the value of sowing Irish certified seed, the benefits of this scheme to Irish growers, as well as the best variety options for 2018 sowings.

The keynote speakers on the day will include Clodagh Whelan from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine and Andy Doyle, Tillage Editor at the Irish Farmers Journal. Specifically, Clodagh will give an insight into crop and variety options for 2018 sowings, while Andy will present best practices for maximising crop potential. In addition, ISTA members Donal Fitzgerald and Tim O’Donovan will discuss the topic of certified seed standards, and how the certification scheme is helping to deliver new varieties.

Those in attendance are eligible for 18 IASIS CPE Credits. Please be sure to register on the day.

The Irish Seed Trade Association represents multipliers, producers and distributors of certified seed in Ireland and promotes the use of certified seed in tillage, forage and grassland crops to ensure the best varieties of seed are made available to Irish farmers.

If tillage farming is your future, this is a must attend event.
