SGS provides a fast, independent data collection and business intelligence reporting service that can underpin your decision-making on investments, new products and services and much more.

Agriculture Field

We can support you throughout the process of market or technical research – from establishing the methodology and performing the data collection analysis, through to the data analysis reporting. Our expertise in agronomy and both statistical and geospatial analysis means we can understand and interpret complex data and provide meaningful insights into your market(s).

We have expertise in a number of methodologies and will adopt the most appropriate to your needs. For example, we can use our global network of agriculture professionals to interview your target audience(s) face-to-face and also conduct telephone interviews. In addition, we are able to gather historical information and statistics, as well as sample and test materials including grains, insects, plant tissue and soil.
