Advanced Spray Application - Level 3
Accredited training delivered in partnership with Craig Day of Spray Safe & Save to experienced NSW based growers, advisors, employees and spray contractors involved in grains and/or cotton production.
Close collaboration with the agricultural industry, including growers, agronomists/advisors and agribusinesses, has highlighted the need for training targeting agronomist/advisors to increase skills in spray planning and overall chemical application management. This course focusses on sprayer setup and operation to minimise spray drift, with specific reference to the new APVMA rules and the future introduction of Dicamba tolerant cotton.
This Level IV accredited training is designed for agronomists/ advisors with a strong interest in broadacre spray planning, setup and application who could specialise in this field for the benefit of their agribusiness. They can be part of a team delivering a uniform message on best practice spray application.
