The Association








The purpose of The Irish Tillage Consultants Association is to provide a forum for discussion between members and as a source of input from expert external sources to the members. The primary aim of the association is to improve the knowledge of each member so this enhanced knowledge can be transferred to customers and their respective businesses. The topics of discussion are focused around the main cereal crops grown in Ireland. For each meeting, topics selected for discussion are based on the time of year and the most pertinent upcoming decisions to be made.
