Lab to Field (Mobile Crop Science Labs)
CHAP has four mobile laboratories. These trailers and their on-board state-of-the-art equipment are available to use by farmers, growers, agronomists, agrochemical companies who want to find solutions to specific crop health problems. This will enable them to make quick decisions about the best actions to take to deal with these challenges.
This could include chemical resistance testing (to weeds such as blackgrass, pathogens such as Septoria and pests such as cabbage stem flea beetle) or general tests on soil health to discover what needs to be done to improve fertiliser use and crop yield. CHAP scientists work with growers to determine the best course of action, based on the information gathered from the tests, to maximise crop yields and profits.
The trailers also provide a unique platform for biochemical companies to perform their own testing and validation protocols in-field, which will accelerate product development and the process of securing regulatory approval.
CHAP can bring a trailer to your farm and provide the scientific background and equipment needed to solve crop health problems.
