UNIQUE EXPERTISE & KNOW-HOW
CETEV is an experimentation and testing center that specializes in Non-Crop, Horticultural and Ornemental trials. Our team focuses on studies and trials to tackle weeding and maintenance issues in green areas and industrial sites. We also study new and existing solutions to protect, treat and maintain trees, shrubs, bushes and plants. CETEV was founded in 2006, in reply to the need for specialized trials in this sector, which is technically different from agricultural and crop applications.
EVALUATE, VALIDATE & INNOVATE TO PROTECT AND MAINTAIN GREEN AREAS
CETEV’S action range
If your product has already been validated and registered for use on agricultural crops, CETEV can adapt your protocol to meet the needs of the Non-Crop and Horticultural sector, based on scientific recommendations and depending on your needs. We work in direct relation to our customers but you’re also welcome to use our subcontracting services. Whether you’re looking for a regulatory GEP-trial for registration and homologation purposes, a study according to the EPPO or CEB method or a short test to help you make quick and objective decisions on a new product, all our trials and studies are designed to fit your needs.
OUR STRENGTHS AND ASSETS
For a study result to be valid and usable, it’s essential that the test site and study design faithfully represent the final use of the tested product. Our team provides a specific testing platform for products, treatments and methods that will be used for non-crop, horticultural and ornemental applications. We offer the flexibility and scientific know-how to fit your requirements.
NON-CROP ZONES, urban green spaces, LOCAL AND INDUSTRIAL INFRASTRUCTURE
highly regulated public spaces
Since January 1st, 2017 in France, phytopharmaceutical products have been prohibited for the maintenance of Non-Crop Zones and Ornemental areas that are open to the public. Biocontrol, low-risk products and products that comply with the requirements for organic farming are still authorized. The CETEV team guides you through regulations for relevant, well-adjusted trials.
