Online learning for better pre-emergence application
Syngenta and the Cereals Event team have got together to bring you a new online learning experience.
Developing on the Sprays & Sprayers education programme, a series on modules and tests will bring you up to date with best practice and techniques for accurate application, as well as valuable points for your NRoSO CPD.
The first module seeks to optimise your pre-emergence applications, focussing on sprayer set-up and nozzle selection.
Presenting the video, Syngenta application specialist, James Thomas (below), highlighted application technique is key for product efficacy, and to ensure effective stewardship that will help retain herbicide options for growers in the future.
“Accurate application will help give the best possible levels of black-grass control from pre-emergence Defy applications this autumn,” added James.
Watch the video, read the text and answer the questions to find out the latest details and gain CPD points.
Northern Ireland specialist spray contractor, Tony Bell (below), has already completed the first module. A winner in the 2015 FSOOTY Awards, he welcomed the opportunity for an autumn application update and the chance to collect NRoSO points.
“Delighted to see a timely refresher in what can be a very crucial time of the year for application. The video and questions are things that we should already know but can sometimes be overlooked,” he said.
“Well done on a great idea through interactive learning,” enthused Tony.
More application modules are in the process of being created by Syngenta and the Cereals Event team. Keep looking out for further details.
