Local Environmental Risk Assessment for Pesticides (LERAP) allow sprayer operators to reduce the buffer zones shown on some product labels. Reading the label is key as no reduction will be possible for some products and others may vary depending on crop type or equipment used and identifying which is which is the starting point.
Find out more about how to conduct a LERAP in our Pesticide Information Note.
