About Us

Welcome to Agrolab

Agrolab is the leading research organization in the EU North zone with experience dating back to 1984. Since then, Agrolab has successfully helped companies by testing, developing and registering plant protection products in the EU (1107/2009).

Over the years, Agrolab has expanded with field trial stations throughout Scandinavia and the Baltic states. Therefore, Agrolab can provide support with in-depth regulatory consultancy and field trial planning for the EU North zone (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania). We are the largest CRO in Scandinavia and the Baltic states and offer trials for registration of plant protection products at our own stations in the region.

We have knowledge of the region and provide expert advice for regulatory support and field trial planning. We know the local systems for registration and can help with registration of plant protection products according to regulation (EC) 1107/2009 for registering plant protection products on the market in EU.

Our History

Agrolab was founded by Ole Gottrup on May 1, 1984. The company started at Røjleskovvej 18 in Middelfart, Denmark and currently operates from this location. At that time, the company’s primary task was performing independent trials with pesticides in agriculture. The tasks were later expanded to include experiments with vegetable cultures in agricultural crops, forestry and to a lesser extent in greenhouses. Late in 2009, Agrolab expanded again with a registration department which is currently located at Store Landevej 14, Middelfart.

During the period 2007 to 2010, Agrolab A/S underwent a generational change when ownership was transferred to Martin Gejl. In 2017, ownership was expanded to include Kenneth Sørensen, Jesper Yngvesson and Carl Jensen, all 3 co-owners have several years of employment in Agrolab.

Today, Agrolab is the largest agricultural C.R.O. in the EU North Zone (Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania). Agrolab offers all services required to register a plant protection product in the EU North zone, from high-quality field trials to registration documentation required by the authorities.
