Eurofins Agroscience Services announced the addition of its first Field Station in Brazil.
Situated in Conchal, São Paulo, a strategic state in south-eastern Brazil, the facility is located on more than 60 acres of arable land. Key crops in the region include citrus, sugarcane, vegetables and annual crops such as soybean, corn and sorghum. A team of experienced agronomists can conduct a variety of trials from the new facility including Ecotoxicology, Efficacy, GMO and Residue studies. The facility also features the necessary equipment and personnel to run bee studies such as RT-25, acute and chronic toxicity, and has its own apiary. The climate conditions are varied but mild, allowing for long trial seasons with higher precipitation from October to March.
During June, the team at the new station hosted an Open Day and welcomed clients, partners and government agencies. This facility in São Paulo is the first of the three Field Stations that will be added to the portfolio this year. The remaining two, planned for Minas Gerais and Paraná state, are expected to be ready during Q3 and Q4 2019.
Marcos de Ferran, GM EAS LATAM, says of the expansion plans “The Conchal field station is strategically located to offer a great variety of studies and crops to our customers and shows our commitment to growth in the LATAM region. It will allow us to move forward in a position of strength, making Eurofins Agroscience Services the best partner CRO for the agroscience regulatory industry and for product development projects in Brazil.”
