The Sustainable Use Directive (SUD) requires that all pesticide application equipment is tested on a regular basis - see NSTS | Voluntary Initiative. NSTS tested sprayers are also a requirement of many UK farm assurance schemes.
We are offering a NSTS testing service for our Nidderdale and Eastern Dales members on Thursday 7th July at Pateley Bridge Auction Mart. Qualified assessors from SprayTrac will carry out NSTS tests of ATV and tractor-mounted sprayers throughout the day. Farmers will need to pay SprayTrac for the cost of the test and any replacement parts.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with sprayer details if you are interested in this service - booking slots will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
