SynTech Research has established a new Station in Bandeirantes, Paraná, comprising 20 ha (~50 acres) of arable land with soil and climate conditions that support a wide variety of crops – soybean, corn (two seasons), dry beans, winter cereals (wheat, barley, oats), coffee and all major vegetables.

The new facility and team has all the infrastructure and technical skills needed for field studies for all the key services required, for crop protection products, seeds and traits with regulated materials, and fertilizers. These include residues, efficacy, ecotoxicology, including higher tier pollinator (semi-field and field) studies and RT25 laboratory studies.

“Bandeirantes Field Station provides a great opportunity to expand SynTech’s  offerings to our clients in this important and representative agricultural region”, says Edilaine Cova Gaitarossa, SynTech Field Testing Manager. “We will be fully operational for the 2020/21 season.

Fernando Gallina, SynTech Regional Director Latin America adds: “This launch is the first of a series of major investments planned for the Region, particularly in Brazil.  We recently opened our Costa Rica operation, we have a Colombia opening planned for 2021 and will add two more stations in Brazil end 2020/early 2021. These investments support our vision to be among very few CROs that can provide quality studies, regulatory services and program management “End-2-End” across the Region. It is also a recognition of the importance and potential of Latin America and Brazilian agriculture to our clients and to SynTech”.
