Facility Accreditation

PGRO’s ORETO accreditation embodies a set of principles that provide a framework within which PGRO’s research work is planned, performed, monitored, recorded, reported and archived.

“PGRO has a reputation for the reliability and technical quality of all our work,” says Jim Scrimshaw, PGRO Principal Technical Officer. “We have been operating with ORETO accreditation for many years, ORETO (Official Recognition of Efficacy Testing Facilities or Organisations in the UK) certifies that PGRO is recognised as being competent to carry out trials/tests for agriculture and horticulture in the context of biological and semiochemicals.

 “As the non statutory levy body which is the UK’s centre of excellence for peas and beans, our continuing investment both in equipment and staff training for our trials programmes and laboratory facilities, ensures that PGRO continues to be recognised as providing authoritative, up to date information and project work based on solid, reliable research.”
