Advice for fertiliser application for silage and grazing ground

As we start aiming for ground being closed for first cut silage, David Wall, Soil Science researcher based at Teagasc Johnstown Castle, joins Catherine Egan to discuss fertiliser application for silage and grazing ground. This year, due to extremely wet weather from mid-January to mid-March, a large amount of ground that would have typically been grazed before closing may not be grazed due to late turnout.  David discusses options and recommends fertiliser programmes to ensure the crop is ready to cut on time. David also highlights the importance of sulphur to the crop and gives fertiliser recommendations for grazing ground.  For further information go to:https://www.teagasc.ie/publications/2020/planning-1st-cut-silage-on-beef-farms.php For more episodes and information covered on the Beef Edge, visit: teagasc.ie/thebeefedge The Beef Edge is a co-production with LastCastMedia.
