Green Lab

Biobest is a leading producer of biological control agents and bumblebees for crop pollination.  We have more than 15 years of experience with side-effect trials, combined with extensive knowledge about the behavior and performance of beneficial organisms in different commercial crops.  As such, Biobest is one of the best placed companies to test the compatibility of your crop protection products with pollinators and biological control agents.

Our expertise and independent position is your best guarantee for a well informed and fully objective assessment of your products.  We can establish a reliable IOBC/WPRS classification and actively assist your company in placing your products within IPM strategies.
 
Accurate side-effect and compatibility testing is a complex process.  As a research facility, Biobest Greenlab is unique in offering a complete range of research options, from laboratory tests up to full scale field studies.  This makes us the first choice for your company when outsourcing your side-effect testing and compatibility trials.
 
Biobest Green Lab consists of an autonomous testing facility with laboratories, bumblebee testing areas and fully equipped greenhouses.  In addition to doing experiments at our Belgian facilities, we also offer the possibility to execute trials under Mediterranean conditions at our Spanish facility.
