Agrii Sprayer Operator Training Courses – Now Free of Charge

NRoSO have only recently informed us that they have reduced the NRoSO CPD points from the 8 they originally awarded to just 2. This was after invitations had been sent out and after some customers had completed the course. The justification given by NRoSO was the length of duration of the course NOT the quality of the content.

This is of course hugely disappointing given the very positive feedback we have received from some of those who have completed the course.

Agrii stand by the high technical content and relevance of our course, and its capability to deliver good practical advice which helps safeguard the environment and maximise the efficiency of spray applications.

In the light of this , as part of our Green Horizons Initiative (https://www.agrii.co.uk/greenhorizons) and our ongoing commitment to operator and environmental safety we have decided that no-one will be charged for this course in 2021 

We have developed these two additional modules to support the NRoSO Training courses.

THE MECHANICS OF SPRAY APPLICATION
✚ Sprayer logistics
✚ Sheet information (droplet size and number & water volume)
✚ Sprayer control systems
✚ The laws of physics and gravity, the effect of boom height
✚ Nozzles and legalities
✚ Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)
✚ Water and adjuvants

TARGETS AND TIMING
✚ Timing and targeting the application of crop protection products
✚ Why timing matters
✚ Contribution to final yield
✚ Growth stages in cereals
✚ Growth stages, targets and application timings
✚ Spraying logistics
✚ Water protection

Operators need to complete both modules and fill in the registration form at
the end of the last module to provide personal and business details to claim 2 NRoSO points and/or 4 BASIS points
