FERA SCIENCE LTD
As Plant Protection Products are developed and registered, there is a need to ensure that they are safe for the aquatic environment. The new E-Flows mesocosm provides a unique test-bed to provide robust data to demonstrate safety. Crop Health & Protection's (CHAP) ground breaking project, supported by Innovate UK and developed, designed, managed & operated by Fera will provide a facility that is a realistic, but closely controlled, facsimile of edge-of-field surface waters that can be exposed to novel products in a real-world scenario to ensure the safety of our aquatic habitats. This unique facility represents a leap forward in the support of Higher Tier Risk Assessments.
