As the next step in the Company’s major investment plan in Latin America, SynTech Research, a foremost global provider of contract R&D services for crop protection and production products, has established a third Field Station in Brazil, in Piracicaba/SP. This complements the Bandeirantes (Parana), and Palmeiras de Goiás Field Stations, both established in the last 18 months.
SynTech’s team of highly qualified specialists has been based in the Piracicaba area since 2009. Acknowledged as a major agricultural center, Piracicaba is one of the main hubs of knowledge and innovation in Brazilian agriculture, including the ESALQ University.
The new station’s soil and climatic conditions allow the cultivation of all crops of economic importance in the State and Brazil – sugar cane, grains, fruit and vegetables. The ten fully-irrigated hectares allow SynTech to implement reliable, high quality trials, year-round.
The station’s experienced researchers and operational staff will carry out Residue Studies (field and laboratory), Seeds and Regulated Traits Studies, Bio-Efficacy Services for agrochemicals, biologicals, biostimulants, fertilizers and ecotoxicological studies, including RT25, semi-field, and field to evaluate the effect of products on bees.
