Organised and run by Syngenta, in association with the Voluntary Initiative and Ei Operator, FSOOTY gives UK sprayer operators the recognition they deserve. Building on the success of previous years, FSOOTY celebrates excellence in sprayer operation, while fostering a sense of camaraderie among operators.

“FSOOTY is proven to be an incredibly rewarding and enjoyable experience for all who participate,” says Scott Cockburn, Syngenta Applications Specialist.

“Everyone who enters faces similar application challenges and frustrations and there’s a huge amount to gain from sharing experiences and ideas. One thing that is repeated every year is that entrants always find they learn something new from other operators and can improve the way they work,” he adds.
