What we do


Good Experimental


Good Experimental Practice

The main purpose of pesticide authorization trials is to ensure that the test product produces the desired effect; does not damage crop plants; and its use does not impede technological, toxicological, environmental, nature and food safety.
The CPR Europe conducts biological tests for plant protection licensing in accordance with GEP (Good Experimental Practice) guidelines. Application may be based on the Test Methods Collections published by the Department of Plant Protection and Agri-Environment of the Ministry of Agriculture and EPPO Standards. The purpose of the experiments is to prove the effectiveness of using the proposed technology.
Our company performs laboratory and field experiments on small and large plots. For example, the germination percentage and germination vigor of plants, seed infestation and content characteristics are determined in a laboratory.
The purpose of small plot trials is to determine the exact and detailed field effects of the treatments, when sufficient information is not yet available (eg new dose effect study, dose adjustment, phytotoxicity control). Authorization trials must be set up in four replicates. Small plots are usually 10 to 50 m2 in size. Small plot treatments are performed with a back compressed air sprayer with variable frame widths of 1.5 to 3 m.
Large parcel sizes are used for demonstration experiments. For large-plot experiments, the size of the plots is 500-20000 m2. Large parcel treatments are carried out with a suspended 10 m wide sprayer.
Trials can be carried out under greenhouse conditions. We can carry out artificial infection in the experimental area, apply weed seeding techniques and provide irrigation conditions.
Our mobile device park allows to set up trials throughout the country. Plots are sown, managed and harvested in our own experimental area and in leased areas. We have all the tools and equipment necessary for the trial work.

Good laboratory


Good laboratory practice

GLP (Good Laboratory Practice): a quality system that deals with the organization and conduct of non-clinical health and environmental safety studies; including their planning, implementation, auditing, documentation, archiving, and issuance of a final report.
There are two main parts of residue analytical tests: one is the laboratory part the other is the field part, which is performed by our company, CPR Europe. For GLP trials, test samples are provided to the analytical laboratory in a given crop. The system's operation in accordance with GLP guidelines guarantees the reliability of test results throug the whole work process.
Our services:
  • Full implementation of field phase of residual analytical studies in international projects
  • Design and development of the field part of residual analytical tests in any crop
  • Set up plant protection trials for residue analysis in any crop throughout the country
  • Testing for residues in soil
  • Professional sampling based on the study design
  • Storage of test samples and preparation for shipment

Development of plant protection technologies

The purpose of pesticide development trials is to:

  • optimization of application times, doses, modes
  • developing the most appropriate plant protection technology
  • comparing efficacy with other products on the market
  • to determine the impact on non-target organisms

Our company performs trials according to the customer's proposed technology, according to the customer's requirements, and in accordance with the international standards in any crop species in the country, unless otherwise requested. We attach the greatest importance to the greatest possible flexibility and fast, professionally based work. The trial reports are written in English in the ARM program.
