FSOOTY 2021 – entry is open now


Could you be the next Farm Sprayer Operator of the year?

Entries are now open for the competition and next June it could be you lifting the FSOOTY trophy in the Sprays & Sprayers Arena at the Cereals Event.

Organised by Syngenta, in conjunction with the Voluntary Initiative and supported by Ei Operator, the FSOOTY award aims to recognise operators’ professional approach, to share their skills and experience and to help encourage further improvements.

You don’t need to have the latest kit, it’s more about your aptitude and attention to detail to consistently deliver the best possible results with every application.

“The competition is not about the latest, biggest and brightest equipment or purpose-built stores,” says Scott Cockburn, FSOOTY judge and Syngenta Applications Specialist. “Rather, it looks for operators who have a thorough understanding of their work and are prepared to show how they handle and apply products safely and efficiently, with respect for the environment.”

2020 FSOOTY finalists

How to enter

Answer three straightforward questions and submit your entry by 30th November 2020.

The winner receives an expenses paid trip to the Agritechnica Show, Hannover, Germany in 2021. The six finalists receive an expenses paid trip for two to Cereals 2021 and for 20 runners up there are also free tickets to the event.
