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 performed in this region is in cereals, both fungi and weed trials.

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

Special for the three trial stations is also that they have one united competence group focusing on trials in horticultural crops. This to preserve and expand the knowledge about trials in these crops and becoming experts within the Nordic zone.
