We are pleased to announce that Biotek Agriculture Argentina in Mendoza is now in operation and that our facilities can guarantee an immediate start of variety trials, residue trials (GLP), efficacy field trials (GPE) and food processing studies.
Mendoza is located in semi-desert conditions on the Argentina side of the Andes and has a rainfall of less than 240mm/year so agriculture is subject to irrigation.
Rivers that provide water to Mendoza are divided in the regions they supply. The Mendoza river, one of the most important, provides the north region. The Tunuyán river is located in De Uco Valley, in the centre region. The Diamante and Atuel rivers provide for the south region.
