GMW Bioscience offers knowledge of national requirements to perform a wide range of efficacy studies (GEP) for registration, product development and demonstration. Efficacy studies are conducted in compliance with current European guidelines as those from EPPO, CEB, BBA or according to specific requirements. Appropriate site selection, climate and cropping regions are very important factors for the successful conduct of efficacy trials. Plant protection products such as fungicides, herbicides, insecticides and growth regulators are tested on small plots with natural or artificial infestation of the target pests. The works (trial set­up, application, assessment, harvest) are performed in a farmer field or at the field station.
