Turner Ag Research performs a wide range of GLP and efficacy studies (GEP) for registration, product development and demonstration. Knowledge of the local crops, occurrence of weeds, pests and diseases provides an ideal basis for successful trials. The principal investigator updates the client at requested intervals and quick study initiation and data exchange are key to helping work flow and data exchange. ARM (Agriculture Research Manager) is utilized to give standard data formats and exchange reports/data. Study designs and application techniques are performed to meet GAP (Good Agricultural Practice) requirements for data use globally. We offer efficacy testing on the following categories of plant protection products:

  • Acaricides
  • Biopesticides
  • Biocides
  • Fertilizers
  • Fungicides
  • Herbicides
  • Insecticides
  • Nematicides
  • PGRs (Plant Growth Regulators)
  • Selectivity / Crop safety
  • Storage pests & diseases
  • Soil disinfectants / sterilants
