EIP (MOPS) Field Talk event August 1st @2pm – Open to all

MOPS Field Talk at Desmond Thorpe’s, Knockroe House, New Ross, Co. Wexford, Y34 RR22

This Field Talk event will take place on a farm that has been in organic production for over thirty years. The focus will be the field scale vegetable enterprise and organic oats. The farm is also participating in the EIP-Agri project – Maximizing Organic Production Systems (MOPS) and is the location for the Green Manure Trial which is a key aspect of the project. Professor Peter Jones will discuss the design, implementation and results of the trail to date with input from Paula Pender and Des Thorpe. This trail will run over three years on the farm and is showing very interesting results for subsequent crop production and biodiversity levels.

This event is open to all however we request that you book into the event to allow for numbers on the day, to book you can reply to this email or alternatively by emailing tricia@irishoa.ie or contacting the office in Athlone by ringing 090 6433680.
