Certis Europe relocates R&D team
Mitsui & Co agrochemical distribution company Certis Europe has relocated its R&D team to new facilities at its affiliate company, Japan Agro Services (JAS), near Nimes in France. In the new facilities, the team will have access to a wide range of laboratory equipment and opportunities for conducting field trials. In addition to closer collaboration and experience sharing with the team at JAS, the new location offers improved IPM support for key customers. The IPM R&D laboratory will focus primarily on development of biopesticides and natural compounds, and their inclusion in IPM programmes, while retaining close links with beneficial insect and mite production at Certis’ IPM-focused subsidiary, BCP Certis.
