Multi-species swards: links to webinars


This post lists some webinars and videos on multi-species swards that our research group has contributed to. 

The Agricultural Science Association in Ireland hosted a webinar on multi-species mixtures on 20th May 2021. The link to the webinar is here. I gave the first presentation, followed by Dr Helen Sheridan, and then Prof. Tommy Boland. Each is about 15 mins, and the recording also includes the Q&A session. 

John Finn gave an overview of his collaborative research in a webinar on multi-species mixtures as part of the Teagasc Signpost Series (from March 2021). A pdf of the presentation can be viewed here

In this video, Guylain Grange and Aidan Lawless show some of our agronomic plots on multi-species mixtures, and our newest systems experiment that implements multi-species swards in the dairy system at Johnstown Castle (from July 2020)

DLF (Seed Company) produced a series of videos as part of a week-long focus on multi-species swards (Jan 2021)
