Research Designed For Agriculture
Let's Talk About Exceptional Research
With over 20 years experience and 2 research locations - Montana and Arizona - RD4Ag is your ideal partner for effective and efficient Agricultural Research.
We offer a wide portfolio of services at both of our locations including:
Our desert location provides an environment that offers the opportunity for screening for traits such as salt, drought, heat tolerance fertility and offers breeding services.
So come talk to us at booth 102 (second row on the left from the entrance) and let's discover how we can work together to provide you with exception research services.

RD4AG & Biostimulants
Success In Biostimulant Trials
As agriculture evolves, our understanding of how to make plants produce more, their interactions with environment, and where they live, evolves. The new frontier is to better stimulate plants to grow and produce more efficiently. The promise of such products, whether they are microbial, fertilizer, PGR or any of the multitude of technologies which can have a positive impact on plant growth, is beginning to come true.
As our understanding of these products advances, so do our methods to test them. Most of these products perform best in conditions of moderate stress, be that salt, moisture, heat, cold, fertility, etc. They seldom are able to show their potential in the high fertility, well irrigated situation of production agriculture. This is especially true in the specialty crops, where no effort is intentionally spared to get maximum production. Testing these products effectively is as much art as science.
Our team has been at the forefront of this type of testing for decades, and Steve West was one of the Keynote Speakers at the 44th Annual meeting of the Plant Growth Regulation Society of America, discussing this challenging topic.. Our blog also has a current discussion on the objectives and nuances of drought trials.
