We’re here to help you GROW.

Your products protect crops from pests and disease, optimize growth for maximum productivity, and preserve nature’s bounty and beauty. Either directly or by ripple effect, the development and use of agrochemicals impacts every living creature on our planet. It is important, if expensive, work. Given the $286M average price tag of testing these products for efficacy and safety, it is important to get your products to market quickly. Our world’s food supply, and your bottom line, depend on it.


Being first to market can increase your revenue and deliver a return on the substantial investment in accelerating development, but this demands smooth sailing through the registration process. Even a small bump in the road can derail your program, causing you to miss milestones, fail to meet registration deadlines, and perhaps even lose an entire season of revenue. The ever-changing regulatory landscape only adds to the complexity of the tasks that lie ahead.


Offering a unique combination of scientific capabilities and deep regulatory knowledge across global markets, Charles River can help you grow with expertly designed and executed programs for your agrochemical development and registration.
