To help you assess the effects of your plant-protection or veterinary medicine products on non-target plant species, Fera offers a range of robust non target terrestrial plant studies to support your product development work.
Our scientists have extensive experience in conducting studies with these non-target plants under laboratory, glasshouse or semi-field conditions. All studies are carried out in line with current international guidelines and guidance documents, and we can adapt our services to provide bespoke tests that meet your specific data requirements.
You can choose from a range of routine and more complex studies, including:
Your product is sprayed onto the soil surface under greenhouse conditions. The emergence and early growth of seedlings are closely observed and measured, in relation to a control group, to assess the impact of your product.
This is an extended plant test with a more realistic exposure scenario for veterinary medicinal products, via manure.
This test assesses the impact of your product on the above-ground portions of non-target plants, under controlled glasshouse conditions. The effects of your product on the plants are observed and measured in relation to a control group, over a set time period.
Our routine tests can be adapted to suit your particular data requirements. Other tests we can conduct include seed treatment dissipation and uptake studies, under laboratory, glasshouse or semi-field conditions.
