The tested nozzles (24) were picked out at random of a stock of 200 nozzles.
Testing takes place according to the Technical Instructions for ENTAM-Tests of
Spray nozzles, rel.1.
This procedure was developed by the competent testing authorities of the European countries participating in ENTAM and is based on the ISO 5682 standard: „Equipment for crop protection - Spraying equipment; Part 1 Test
methods for sprayer nozzles“ and on EN 12761 standard: „Agricultural and
forestry machinery - Sprayers and liquid fertilizer distributors - Enviromental
protection; Part 2“. This test is only a technical performance test which takes
place without an accompanying field test. The test results apply only to the tested appurtenances of the sprayer. Statements on the behaviour of different
appurtenances cannot be derived from these results.
