Approved is better!

SKL (Foundation for Quality Control of Agricultural Equipment) in Wageningen (the Netherlands) is the Dutch organisation for testing agricultural machines in use.

Inspection of fixed and semi-mobile sprayers

For all spraying equipment it is very important that the agrochemicals are applicated safe and effective. Therefore SKL has, beside the inspection of field-crop and air-assisted sprayers, also devolped a testing scheme for other spraying equipment

For fixed and semi-mobile sprayers (f.e. used in greenhouses) the inspection is mandatory, this sprayers are inspected according to EN-ISO 16122:4 (2015).

For Low-volume application equipment like foggers and LVM equipment, no harmonized standard is available. Therefore SKL has developped its own inspection protocol based on Annex 2 of 2009/128/ec.
