RIFCON offers standard as well as tailor-made generic and exposure related field studies, working with any relevant avian species occurring in agricultural landscapes.
Beside field effect studies, we conduct generic GLP field studies that address the determination of focal species and of realistic exposure parameters like ‘portion of time’ (PT) or ‘portion of diet’ (PD) in any crop type across Europe and beyond (e.g. recording of EU relevant data for South American authorities). Furthermore, we design and conduct specific and data gap focused semi-field and pen studies to collect risk assessment relevant refinement data on avoidance or de-husking behaviour.
Focal species studies
Determination of country, crop or scenario specific species
Determination of exposure, including most appropriate PT calculation options
Determination of diet proportion for addressing residues
Based on RIFCON developed designs
Data recording for acute & long-term WoE approaches
Avian diet residue decline studies
Determination of exposure, including most appropriate DT50, moving time-window or AUC calculation options
Based on RIFCON-developed designs
Monitoring & survey studies
For post-registration needs according to compound-related MS requirements
