Spreading equipment for plant protection products must undergo functional testing and be approved by the Swedish Board of Agriculture
All plant protection sprays that are used professionally must undergo functional testing at least every three years in order to be approved.
The purpose of the functional testing is to ensure that the spreading equipment is
- in good condition
- fit for purpose
- well calibrated, i.e. the spray has the correct setting and (for example) spreads the correct amount of the product.
