Woodstock Agricultural Research Centre, operated by ‘Shell’ Research Ltd, is one of a number of Shell Company laboratories working in the agricultural chemicals field. One of the main functions of Woodstock is the synthesis of new chemical compounds for testing as potential new pesticides and over twenty thousand compounds have already been screened there since the laboratory was set up. A similar number of compounds have been examined at other Shell laboratories so that both chemical and biological data on nearly fifty thousand compounds are now available and are being augmented at a rate of around four thousand each year.
