Brazil Field Station established
SYNTECH Research, a global provider of contract R&D services for crop protection and production products, has established a third Field Station in Brazil, in Piracicaba/SP.
The new station’s soil and climatic conditions allow the cultivation of all crops of economic importance in the State and Brazil, including potatoes and other vegetables.
The station’s researchers and operational staff will carry out residue studies (field and laboratory), seeds and regulated traits studies, bio-efficacy services for agrochemicals, biologicals, biostimulants, fertilisers and ecotoxicological studies, including RT25, semi-field, and field to evaluate the effect of products on bees.
The company already has field stations in Bandeirantes (Parana), and Palmeiras de Goiás, both established in the past 18 months.
SynTech’s team of specialists has been based in the Piracicaba area since 2009. Piracicaba is one of the main hubs of knowledge and innovation in Brazilian agriculture, including the ESALQ University.
