The research organization is a fundamental part of NSL. We perform a broad spectrum of field trials in order to support the farm advisory service, the farmers and agricultural companies. The main trial station is situated 60 km west of Helsinki, at Västankvarn farm in Ingå, but some of the trials are placed at Stor-Sarvlaks Farm in Lovisa, 70 km east of Helsinki. We do also have a good network of farmers who are willing to lend us good trial sites when we need a place with a specific target e.g. a weed or a plant disease.
