Efficacy trials

Knowledgeable staff who have access to a wide range of local grower and consultant contacts helps us carry out successful efficacy and crop selectivity trials. OAT can locate suitable trial sites in virtually any crop, whether it’s herbicide, fungicide, insecticide, biostimulant, fertiliser or growth regulator trials that are required.

Our regionalisation of sites maximises the chances of success. In-depth experience at local level gives us a truly invaluable asset.
