The deadline for the annual Amenity Spray operator of the year awards is begining to creep up on us.
The winner last year was Keith Gallacher, pictured above at BTME January 2019.
With increasing pressure on Plant Protection Products being mounted it is more important than ever that as an industry we ensure we do the very best job of applying the products.
Over the last year visiting golf courses I’ve met some outstanding spray operators, yet I’m always surprised how few enter the awards.
This award isn’t really about the winning (although it’s a prize worth having) it’s about showing as an industry what a great and responsible job we do applying products in a safe and correct method. If you feel you or a member of your team is doing a good job of applying products (and please don’t under estimiate how good a job your doing) – apply. If you don’t think you’re doing a good job – we’ve got some work to do.
The Turf team here at Syngenta are fully commited to helping people develop there spraying skills and understanding.
