Free sprayer check-up

PARTICIPANTS in Profarmas Hectacare sprayer scheme can now have their sprayers checked over free of charge using a 30-point check plan designed by the company. Intended to help farmers comply with quality assurance requirements, the date and remedial work performed are recorded.

"We were already doing the work as part of the regular inspection and maintenance programmes carried out each year, but now we have devised a way of recording these checks," explains Profarmas James McIntyre. &#42
