Do you know what he was spraying? It could be fert or trace elements..... or just water to wind up the nosey neighbours. :unsure:

Nosey neighbours! More like rubbing our noses in it!

Bad practice and there should be consequences, but there never is.

He did just stop at the end while the heavy rain passed.

All down to operators and good and bad everywhere.
