Environmental Fate Studies

Receive higher tier data on the behavior of PPPs in all environmental compartments.

Tailored environmental fate (Efate) studies that support environmental risk assessments for plant protection products (PPPs).

Without good management in the use of pesticides and other agrochemicals, environmental damage can occur that risks costly fines and business damage. Higher tier studies are often required to generate additional real-world data following the initial Tier 1 aspects of a risk assessment.

We offer a comprehensive range of customizable Efate field studies to help you properly assess the fate in air, soil and water when using PPPs. Commonly conducted good laboratory practice (GLP) studies include terrestrial field dissipation (TFD) and accumulation, field leaching, run-off and drainage, as well as ground and surface water monitoring and dust drift.

We successfully complete Efate studies all around the world, utilizing our unrivalled network of field station and state-of-the-art research facilities. Our expert study teams develop tailored study programs, which conform to appropriate guidelines and ensure regulatory compliance. Using high tech monitoring technologies, we capture data on local climate conditions, including parameters relating to soil temperature and moisture, and water percolation.

SGS is recognized as the benchmark for quality and integrity. As an accredited contract research organization (CRO), we support your need for robust Efate analysis through our global network of field stations and testing facilities.
