Growel has three laboratories in Andhra Pradesh, located in Singarayapalem, Kaikaluru, and Bhimavarm. More laboratories are planned to be opened in the future.

The labs are equipped with modern diagnostic tools to help farmers assess their water quality parameters and shrimp health. We offer microbiology and PCR testing services.

Test reports are promptly sent to farmers via Mobile App, SMS and email. The messages are also copied to the local Growel technical and marketing staff so they can reach out to the farmers and provide them with the required technical support.
