Everyone who uses pesticides in a professional context will have to complete a suite of pesticide qualifications due to changes in legislation 2015. This applies to everyone who works in the rural economy.

The course will enable you to use weed wipers and wick applicators. They are ideal for using on rushes, bracken and areas of large weed infestation where having direct contact with the target is far more effective. Those working under environmental stewardship schemes find weed wipers effective for weed control as there is no risk of drift.
