Fruit Growers Laboratory, Inc. / FGL Environmental (FGL), is a full service agricultural and environmental laboratory serving California for over 90 years. Our five laboratory locations are staffed with qualified laboratory technicians, plus administrative and field support personnel.
In 1925, Fruit Growers Laboratory got its start by providing analytical services to the local growers of Ventura County, analyzing leaf tissue, soil and irrigation water to help optimize crop quality and yield. To this day, generations later, FGL is well connected to the grower community that gave us our start. In 1973 Fruit Growers Laboratory was incorporated as a standard California corporation and continued to expand services to the agricultural industry, while addressing the growing need for environmental analyses of drinking water, waste water and hazardous waste. Each facility is accredited by the CA Environmental Laboratory Accreditation Program - ELAP.
FGL is classified as a Small Business Enterprise (SBE No. 4690) and our Standard Industrial Classification (SIC code) is 8734. FGL employs its own Field Services Department consisting of trained and skilled technicians offering sampling and pick up services. Our continuous investment in qualified personnel, the finest analytical equipment, and compliance-focused information management and reporting systems, ensures that FGL will continue to provide reliable service to our loyal customers for decades to come.
