Agritechnology has well-equipped analytical laboratories to cover our activities and we have protocols for efficiently monitoring and supporting our operations. We regularly monitor our analytical accuracy against the Australian Federal Government National Measurement Institute.
We engage international providers for analytical services that are not available in Australia and we undertake wide-ranging benchmarking activities across laboratories for more obscure analyses.
