Buffer zones for product applied with horizontal boom equipment

There will be some products which have buffer zones specified at distances greater than 5 metres as detailed in interim extension to LERAP scheme guidance. These are on a crop basis and can be searched for under "LERAP Category" via the Product search in the Pesticides Register Database.
