The deadline (End of June) for the annual Amenity Spray operator of the year awards is beginning to creep up on us.
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 proving we have great stewardship practices in place and do a fantastic job of applying the products.
Don’t fancy scrolling through this blog, you can just listen to it if that is easier. Just tap ‘play’ below.
In my time with Syngenta 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 underestimate 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 committed to helping people develop there spraying skills and understanding.
