Greenhouse and semi-field trials

Our unique greenhouse and semi-field facilities give us the possibility to carry out resistance studies as well as trials under controlled conditions with a wide range of crops, diseases and pests. We have a completely new cabin sprayer, which is an important tool in the glasshouse and semi-field trials. It can carry out sprayings accurately and with a relatively large capacity.
Insecticide trials in greenhouses can be carried out in cages so that the target pest does not escape from the host plants.
We rear our own thrips (Western flower thrips), bean and green peach aphids as well as whiteflies for the insecticide trials. In addition, we can offer rearing of certain other insect species per agreement.
