UNIQUE EXPERTISE & KNOW-HOW

CETEV is the Center of Expertise for Environmental and Plant Techniques. Our experts conduct specialized trials for the non-crop and horticultural sector and help your innovations move forward.

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.

CETEV’S action range

Designing a trial for non-crop, horticultural or ornemental applications requires an expert approach. CETEV has been certified for Good Experimental Practice since 2009 and provides a range of trials, tests and studies that fit the needs of the sector for thorough and reliable science.

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.

cetev RESEARCH & innovation

A research center to develop new solutions for the maintenance of non-crop zones, lawns, public recreational areas, local infrastructure and industrial sites

Due to recent changes in legislation, a number of traditional practices have become obsolete. Innovation has become crucial to help professionals maintain public green areas, ornemental plants and local infrastructure while protecting the environment and respecting economic constraints. To help your innovation move forward, CETEV provides a specialized innovation and research center for non-crop applications.

Our multidisciplinary team provides the required expertise to help industrial and academic players make the right decisions when it comes to innovative solutions, regulatory changes and product opportunities for the sector.
