This European Standard specifies requirements for the environmental protection for design and construction of mounted, trailed and self-propelled full width solid fertilizer distributors and solid fertilizer broadcasters used in agriculture and horticulture. It also gives the requirements for the minimum content of the instruction handbook. The standard does not apply to machines which are: a) combined grain and fertilizer drills; or b) equipment for distributing granulated pesticides; or c) solid fertilizer line-distributors (which are dealt with in EN 13740-1:2003 and in EN 13740-2:2003). Personal safety aspects have not been considered in this standard; they are dealt with in EN 14017:2005+A2:2009. If the term ‘machine’ is used it covers both full width distributors and broadcasters, except in the definitions.
