‘Best Practice for Fruit Spraying’

NRoSO annual training events (roadshows) continue to be a major source of update training for spray operators and Hutchinsons are very happy to be supporting the initiative by arranging courses around the country.

  • Sprayer Operator - Overview: This section discusses NRoSO best practice for spraying, from monitoring and scouting, through to spraying and record keeping.
  • Current Issues: Items in the national news and local issues discussed in more detail.
  • Technology, Operator and Tips: We will look at current application technology and a collection of top tips from Farm Sprayer Operator of the Year (FSOOTY) finalists.
