    Farm Sprayer Operator of the Year 2019

    Syngenta's Farm Sprayer Operator of the Year is back again for 2019, with the same ethos as before, to find the best Farm Sprayer Operator in the UK.

    The application of crop protection products is one of the most complex challenges faced on farm. From filling the sprayer, through applying the spray to disposing of the empty containers, the operator is faced with many possible ways of doing the job.

    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.

    It’s a tricky balance, but for many operators, it comes as second nature. The Farm Sprayer Operator of the Year award aims to recognise this professional approach and help encourage further improvements.

    It’s not about having the latest kit. If you can demonstrate ingenuity and an ability to meet these varying objectives by using agrochemicals sensibly, then you are in with a chance of winning.

    As always, the competition winner will be announced at the Cereals show in June and there will be a finalists’ dinner the night before.

    The Farming Forum are helping to promote the competition and the farmers themselves who take the time enter. It's always nice to see TFF members in the finals!
