Spray Diary validation and certification
CropSure growers, following industry or customer specific recognised Spray Programmes developed for specific crops, maintain detailed records of all chemical applications to their production. These records, on submission to CropSure, are electronically validated to ensure only approved applicators with calibrated equipment have applied chemicals within appropriate time frames in accordance with their specific Industry Spray Programme.
Certification is issued for all Management Areas / Varieties that comply with the pre-requisite programme conditions.
Random Residue Testing is completed to provide additional assurance that growers are meeting their Industry programme requirements.
The CropSure programme can also be tailored to meet specific customer residue assurance requirements. This is achieved by facilitating the collection and dispatch of any product samples to our laboratory for comprehensive residue testing.
CropSure will validate and certify residue test results against Maximum Residue Levels (MRL’s) to determine Market Suitability for those markets requested by the Industry completing the testing.
