SKL (Foundation for Quality Control of Agricultural Equipment) in Wageningen (the Netherlands) is the Dutch organisation for testing agricultural machines in use.
SKL will achieve this by organising periodical inspections of equipment by SKL-certified testing stations. This testing stations can either be in the Netherlands or abroad.
At this moment is SKL supervising the sprayer-inspection scheme in the Netherlands. The testing of fieldcrop sprayers, sprayer for bush and tree crops and sprayers for weed control on pavements is obligatory.
This sprayers are testing according to SKL-test protocols at SKL certified teststations by qualified inspectors. This teststations have the right test-equipment to perform the inspections in the right way. SKL supervises the teststations and checks the test-equipment annualy. The results of the tests are put in a central webbased database. The owner of the sprayer will get a uniform testreport of the inspection and on the approved sprayers a label is placed.
