Farm sprayer competition recognises top operators

An expenses-paid trip to a top agricultural event is up for grabs – with the Farm Sprayer Operator Of The Year awards open for 2020 entries.

The application of crop protection products is one of the most complex jobs faced on the farm. Today’s operators are faced with many possible challenges, along with demands for ever greater accuracy and precision, say organisers.

Run by Syngenta, in association with the Voluntary Initiative, the awards recognise best practice – and encourage a professional approach among operators willing to share their skills and experiences – and aim to help further improvements.

Every operator develops their own innovative tips and tricks to make the job quicker, more effective and safer. But the awards are all about the people and the best practice or the way they work, not the size or age of their sprayer.

Finalists often become friends for life – and all entrants get the chance to meet and share experiences with like-minded sprayer operators with a passion to enhance application techniques.

It’s not about having the latest kit, explains Syngenta application specialist James Thomas. Instead, it is more about having the right aptitude and attention to consistently deliver the best possible results with every application, he adds.

“The use of plant protection products is under constant scrutiny, so it is important to use them safely and efficiently in a way that meets crop needs, as well as public, operator and environmental safety.”
