Trials platform for biocontrol products :

Thanks to its extensive experience in the assessment and registration processes for plant protection products, BIOTEK Agriculture aims to play a role in the new challenges brought by the French Ecophyto plan.
The objective of a 50% reduction in the use of pesticides requires farmers to continue producing efficiently while having access to new and creative alternatives for crop protection.

Services provided by BIOTEK Agriculture:

Located in Givry, in the Saone & Loire Region, our 7 hectares trials platform (of which half of the area has been cultivated organically since 2014) is meant to be a laboratory for innovative practices.
On this platform a wide range of annual crops, representative of the French agricultural production, can be grown.
This is a serviced area that can easily be connected to electrical and computer equipment.
Water is directly supplied by drilling and can be used for irrigation and/or misting depending on the specific needs of the trials.
The platform is also equipped with insect-proof tunnels for studies on auxiliaries.

 

 

This “real-life sized” tool is dedicated to companies wanting to evaluate biocontrol products in these particular conditions.
