For more detailed information about Agrolab and the services we provide within the Regulatory landscape and Field phase development of chemicals, including pesticides, bio pesticides or biocides, please contact our Business Development Manager Jesper Yngvesson.


Agrolab has operated in compliance with the OECD principles of GLP since 1989 and have extensive experience in GLP field studies both as principal field investigators and study directors. Our team can handle all arable crops grown in the region, including all vegetable and greenhouse crops.

We offer GLP studies for a wide range of crops and purposes, for example:

– MOR and Decline trials for arable crops, vegetables, top fruit, soft fruit, greenhouse crops (cucumber, tomatoes, melons, strawberries etc.).

– EC10 studies : Determination of phytotoxic effects on succeeding crops

– Soil dissipation studies on fields with known history, Special crop rotation studies, bare soil studies – with and without irrigation.
Soil cores can be collected down to 1 meter.

Residue samples are stored as long as necessary and sent frozen to the analytical laboratories.

Raw data are stored at our archive as long as required.

Our study directors is responsible for the overall conduct of studies, from writing the study plan to writing the final report with incorporating results from analytical laboratories.

We also work as principle investigators acting on behalf of the study director in multisite studies.


Agrolab has many field sites available and can offer GLP studies in a wide range of arable crops or on bare soil sites, including large-scale field studies, smaller field and semi-field studies. We have extensive experience of conducting studies with;

– Earthworms (Acute and chronic laboratory toxicity tests, OECD guidelines no 207 and 222)

– Organic matter breakdown in litterbag (OECD guideline no 56)

– Soil organisms such as Collombola

– Full faunal studies in arable crops

We have excellent facilities for conducting GLP studies on our own land, with or without irrigation, including the option for large trials with plot sizes up to 2 Ha.

Non target arthropods are collected using appropriate methods, such as pitfall traps. Samples for residue analysis can be included in the study design.

Agrolab can also offer non-target terrestrial plant studies in accordance with OECD guidelines 208 (Seedling emergence and seedling growth) and 227 (Vegetative Vigor) EPPO standard PP1/207(2). Studies are conducted under controlled environmental conditions in growth chambers.
