NAICC Farm Tour At RD4AG


This is RD4AG’s 35th year of agricultural research and to celebrate we’re hosting the 2018 NAICC annual pre-conference Farm Tour at our facility here in Yuma.


We’ll be showing crops in all stages of development - some like cilantro, fennel and artichoke, for seed. Our harvest and cooling systems will be on display and we’ll be addressing issues of food safety and the leafy greens initiative and much, much more.


You’re all invited to our 35th Birthday Barbecue at the end of the tour where you can mingle with other attendees, our staff and members of the Yuma agricultural community.


If you have further questions or are unable to attend the farm tour, then come visit RD4AG in the NAICC exhibition hall at stand 515.


We look forward to meeting you all in Yuma. Details of transportation and lodging can be found here.

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 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.
