7.6.4 - Horticultural installations

A horticultural installation is likely to be subject to the same wet and high-earth-contact conditions experienced in agriculture, but will be free from the extra hazards associated with the presence of animals. In other respects it is subject to the same requirements as an agricultural installation as described in {7.6.2}. A type of load not so likely to be present in the agricultural situation is the soil warming circuit often used in horticulture. The relevant Regulations for such circuits are considered in {7.11.4}.
