Scania – three trial stations

In the southernmost part of Sweden we have three trial stations; Borgeby, Helgegården and Sandby Gård. All three trial stations perform both GEP trials and GLP-studies. Most GEP trials in this region are performed in cereals, both fungi and weed trials.

The three trial stations have their own areas of specialization; Water economy and potato, Sugar beets and weeds, and Organic farming and biodiversity. Read more about these focus areas under each paragraph.

In horticultural crops we offer a special feature: A united competence group comprising advisors, study directors and trial performers, focusing on all trials in horticultural crops. In this way the know-how of trials for these crops is preserved and expanded, resulting in, possibly, the widest expertise knowledge within the Nordic zone
