Spraywise

Spraywise is a comprehensive stewardship programme for all sectors, including grassland and arable production. Nufarm have put together a 7-part video series which details best practice through the entire spraying journey, from stores to washing out in field. With the aid of Tom Robinson and special thanks to Iain Robertson and John Martin, this initial Spraywise content provides guidance and user-friendly decision-support tools to determine when and how to apply the correct inputs, optimising performance on target crops, at the same time minimising environmental impacts and maximising your return on investment.

Please note that the 4 NRoSO points or 2 BASIS are no longer available with the series unless you registered and answered the Spraywise quiz between July 2020 and July 2021.
