Biologicals

There is a clear trend towards biological solutions for plant growth and pest control. However, it is important to note that the product’s function determines the regulatory process followed, not the origin or components of the product. Therefore, biological PPPs fall under 1107/2009 (with some modifications), and biological fertilizers and biostimulants will fall under 2019/1009.

At Agrolab, we have several Field and Regulatory Specialists with increased focus on biological products. We can provide expert advice on testing and registering your Biological products at both the EU and North Zone levels.

Variety testing

Agrolab has the knowledge and equipment for variety testing in cereals, legumes, oilseed rape and maize. Additionally, we offer post-harvest analysis in our Seed and Germination lab.

Please contact the Sales Team for more information.

Demo & marketing trials

Agrolab is very flexible in meeting client requests and can carry out almost any trial related to agriculture, forestry and greenhouses; including population sampling, fertilizer testing, specific purpose marketing trials, logarithmic demonstration trials or in depth dose response analyses with logarithmic application and dose response curve fitting. We also offer tank mix testing for compatibility and spray-ability of formulated products.

Greenhouse

Agrolab owns 2 semi-permanent tunnels with automated irrigation.  Additionally, we have access to permanent greenhouse facilities and can conduct GEP, GLP or for R&D trials.

Weed resistance testing

Agrolab can conduct resistance tests on specific weeds in controlled environments.

Grass weeds are especially common in the North Zone Countries where Agrolab operates. This is also the case following maintenance applications. Therefore, Agrolab can assist in determining the resistance profile of your company’s herbicide products.
