cetev innovation & RESEARCH

for non-crop, HORTICULTURAL & ornemental APPLICATIONS

Innovation requires a combination of competences. Due to regulatory evolutions in the sector, a number of commonly used practices have recently become obsolete.

Today, many parties involved in the protection and maintenance of Non-Crop, Horticultural and Ornemental areas are actively searching for new solutions in order to safeguard the environment while respecting economic constraints. To help your project move forward, CETEV has established a research center, dedicated to innovative projects and ideas.

Since its creation in 2006, CETEV has confirmed its reliability and expertise in the non-crop sector. Our highly specific know-how, so critical to our trials and studies, has been put to good use during internal and collaborative R&D programs. In 2017, with the addition of our engineering department, we provide an innovative approach, with a complete set of services, competences and close partnerships.

Whether your project is still just an idea or is already under development, CETEV can help you move forward. We generally establish a non-disclosure agreement before we work with you to define the framework of our collaboration. Our goal is develop your solution to maintain and protect public green areas, local infrastructure or complex industrial sites.

Confidentiality is at the core of all our trials and studies. We naturally observe the same discretion when it comes to developing new solutions. Our team has been trained to always respect the strictest confidentiality and we establish non-disclosure agreements for every project.

OUR innovations

Since 2010, CETEV has been working on secure micro-injection as an alternative to spraying.

This new approach has been designed for use on trees. Its efficiency and safety were validated and documented during internal research programs and in the framework of the French PREAMISSE program.

The PREAMISSE project ran from 2014 to 2017. Its aim was to study the treatment of trees using injections instead of spraying. The project was designed to protect trees and vines from specific diseases via the secure micro-injection of phytosanitary products.

In 2017, CETEV added an internal engineering department to further develop the approach, which is currently being tested by partners. More information…
