ILVO's Spray Tech group is responsible for the mandatory and periodic inspection of sprayers in Flanders (BELAC accreditation 197 – INSP – ISO 17 020). Every three years, about 11 900 field sprayers, 1600 orchard sprayers and 700 greenhouse sprayers are tested by three mobile inspection teams. During these tests, all parts influencing the distribution of the crop protection products are checked, e.g. the pressure gauge, nozzles, pressure distribution, spray boom stability, etc.
