National Sprayer Testing Scheme (NSTS) –  The Voluntary Initiative

An industry-led partnership to promote the responsible use of agricultural and horticultural pesticides. Farmers are required by law to take all reasonable precautions when using pesticides to protect the public and the environment.

Guidance on how to comply with legislation is given in the statutory Code of Practice for Using Plant Protection Products, which applies to all professional users of pesticides.

Agriculture and Amenities qualify as professional users of pesticides and require testing for all Pesticide Application Equipment (PAE).

We carry out testing for all spraying, spreading and pelleting machines. Book your NTST sprayer test in now or get in touch with your local service+ team to find out more about our all-in safety packages.
