All pesticide applications must be registered with name, date, crop-pest / crop- disease combination, dosage and field identification where applied.
Buffer zones of adequate size between treated crop areas and sensitive off-crop areas, (surface water, springs, ecological infrastructures), must be observed, (see point 2.6).
The official pre-harvest intervals to minimise pesticide residues must be followed and should, if possible, be extended. They must be recorded for all applications of crop protection product and evidence should be provided that they have been observed. In situations with continuous harvesting, systems must be in place in the field to ensure that safety rules are sufficiently followed (e.g. warning signals).
Spraying during windy weather conditions when wind velocity is exceeding 5m/sec, is not allowed.
