Re: Compact Tractor

"They" seem to be the HSE. Looks like I'll get a contractor in to give it a spray, much easier than paying for all the training, getting a permit, and buying a knapsack sprayer. Its around about 150 notes for the PA1 Foundation Course and 250 quid for the PA6 test for knapsack sprayers. M...

Re: Compact Tractor

I chucked some roundup on them last year, and it didnt bother them at all. They seem to return every year with a vengeance. Do I need a spraying license to purchase Asulox, or is it widely available to a small holder. EDIT: "From 1st November 2016, it will be illegal to apply or store (Asulox)...
