NRoSO Arable Training Roadshows – ‘Check, Protect, Reflect’

(This course qualifies for 10 NRoSO CPD and 4 BASIS CPD points)

UK farmers, growers and their sprayer operators have been steadily increasing their awareness of best practice regarding pesticide application. Over the last decade, the NRoSO annual training events (roadshows) have been a major source of update training for operators and Farmacy are very happy to support the initiative by arranging courses around the country.

This year members are invited to participate again in an interactive training event that focuses on how to avoid things going wrong and what “best practice” actually means on the farm. We provide workshops on arable crops and separate workshops on fruit production.

Operators will have the opportunity to share tips and solutions that work for them, and learn from their colleagues and others attending the event, best practice techniques that they could adopt in the future.

This year’s arable event is again divided into four sections:

  • Current Issues: This covers topical items that are felt worthy of discussing in more detail. This section will also cover specific local issues that your presenter will tailor to your geographical area or crop production system.

  • Pesticide Storage: In this section we will cover industry best practice for storage of pesticides.

  • Water Protection: In this section we will look at methods of removing pesticides from water and examples of pollution incidents.

  • Technology, Operator and Tips: In this section we will look at current application technology and a collection of top tips from Farm Sprayer Operator of the Year (FSOOTY) finalists.

Delegates will receive:

  • 3 hours of interactive training on the course syllabus
  • Delegate Work Book incorporating relevant best practice guides
  • Certificate of attendance showing CPD points
  • Refreshments and lunch provided for all sessions
