Summary

Organic farms must have their spraying equipment tested every 4 years.

Difference

Whereas the Swiss Ordinance requires spraytests, EU Regulation 2092/91 does not rule this point of concern.

Justification

As good agricultural practise also in organic farming all spraying equipment must work perfectly in order to avoid non adequate application of agricultural substances.
