Non Target Plants
Offering a full range of emergence and vigour testing, soil quality and toxicity testing, Eurofins Agroscience Services is your ideal partner
We perform tests that are designed to evaluate potential effects on seedling emergence and seedling early growth, observing the germination and growth of plant seeds or to evaluate the potential effects on the above-ground portions of plants.
Additionally we can conduct tests which are designed to determine the inhibition of growth and reproductive capability of higher plants by treated soils according ISO 22030. Tests following the recent OECD guidelines are performed under defined conditions in a greenhouse, which is located in the province of Valencia, Spain. These studies can be conducted all the year round.
Seedling Emergence and Vegetative Vigour Test (OECD 208+227)
The toxicity effects (inhibition of growth and plant health) of plant protection products to plant seeds or young plants are tested following the recent OECD Guidelines 208 and 227. Tests are performed in a greenhouse, which is located in the province of Valencia, Spain.
Soil quality - Biological methods - Chronic toxicity in higher plants (ISO 22030)
The test is designed to determine the inhibition of growth and reproductive capability of higher plants by treated soils under defined conditions in a temperature- and light- controlled room or growth chamber. The test is performed according to ISO 22030 (2005).
