Early stage to marketing field trials from SGS – develop new actives or combinations of actives before registration and demonstrate and validate performance.

Food

In early stage development the performance of new active ingredients or combinations of active substances in standard formulations is investigated to establish a robust set of data for the definition of the label conditions for Good Agricultural Practice (GAP). The experience and in-depth understanding of the field operation is key during this early phase of product research.

Unless these trials are not part of a regulatory package, good experimental practice and thorough documentation and communication with the sponsor are required to select the right candidate for further development. Once a product is ready for launch to the market, the comparative assessment with competitor products is vital for introduction to farmers and further stakeholders.

Our field trials offer you accredited operations, standardized operating procedures, a proven field trial document system, compliance stewardship program, trained and experienced staff and state-of-the-art equipment to prevent bias in the service performed. We also provide demonstration trials and the organization of demo-days to allow farmers to assess the advantage of technology and new products.
