SGS Expands Field Trials Capablities in Poland
SGS has expanded its field trial capabilities in Poland, adding three new field trial stations, in Zamarte, Cebulki, Święcice, to its network. Prepared and launched in good time for the new season, these new locations enable SGS to offer GLP and GEP field trials across a range of climates and geographical regions to best meet client needs. For the autumn season, further capacity can be provided to our clients.
Poland belongs to the EU central registration zone and the EPPO maritime climate zone. Its climate can be very diverse, from the northeast, which shares the climate of the Baltic States, to more moderate temperatures in the central region and warmer drier conditions in the south. This diversity impacts farming as well as the crops sown and harvested.
As one of Europe’s most productive agricultural countries, it is important that Poland provides sufficient agronomical solutions to farmers, including seeds and new pesticides. SGS’s trial services include the GEP and GLP trials required for new product registration. With increased coverage in Poland the company can provide a better service through the distribution of trials, especially into regions vulnerable for leaching, disease and pests, with coverage for all major crops.
Farmers are also increasingly using field trials to obtain an independent data set.
With an extensive network of field stations and a team of local experts and field technicians, SGS can provide GEP and GLP field trials for all the major crops grown in Poland.
SGS provides the above field trials services from its sites at:
- Satellite stations near Radom and near Poznan / Wroclaw are established.
The rapid growth in Poland is part of a wider expansion of the company’s European network. SGS has field stations and laboratories in 14 EU countries in and provides clients with:
- Good coverage in all EPPO climatic zones.
- PAN EU solutions for field trials.
- Extensive experience and expertise delivering results and reporting on time.
- Capability to conduct difficult and non-typical trials.
- Further expansion is planned for the 2014/2015 season.
