Laboraad is a research lab and works on sustainable innovation in agriculture and horticulture. Our lab specializes in product research, product development, product registration, organic certification, and patent rights.

Our specialists develop new sustainable soil conditioners, bio-stimulators, fertilizers and cultivation substrates. In addition to our research projects, we also work on commission.


The agricultural and horticultural sector is facing the great challenge of being able to feed the growing world population sustainably in the future. Laboraad wants to support the agricultural sector in providing sustainable and high-quality solutions that contribute to circular agriculture and horticulture and comply with current regulations. Laboraad supplies smart solutions/products for every crop.


Laboraad bridges the gap between the fundamental knowledge development of universities and the green research questions of companies. The lab works at the interface of a circular economy, innovation, and sustainability. The team always strives to find creative solutions and works at the limits of knowledge.


Laboraad has been located at Zernike Campus Groningen since 2017: a hub of knowledge development and innovative entrepreneurship. Startups and spin-off companies from the University of Groningen are working on realizing impact within the domains: "Healthy Aging", "Sustainable Society" and energy.
