Developing Tomorrow’s Agriculture
Research Designed for Agriculture (RD4AG) provides independent agricultural research services to the agribusiness industry. We assist companies in the development, assessment and regulatory aspects of exciting new technologies to further the success of agriculture in providing food and fiber for a growing world.
We’re All About the Field
Our value is our knowledge which we draw from deep roots in agriculture. Products and systems such as fertilizers, conventional and organic pesticides, growth enhancers; conventional and biotech seed and plant varieties; irrigation, equipment, farming systems, etc. are tested in our fields under real world conditions. Our dynamic team of researchers collaborate to bring excellence to every project. In business since 1983, RD4AG is one of the leading CRO's in agri-products testing in a broad range of crops.
The SouthWest Advantage
The low desert of Arizona farms 12 months a year. We can produce two crops of maize per year, and raise spring wheat for harvest in April or early May. We are a winter nursery for oilseed rape, and a major production area for leafy vegetables and brassicas. Our planting season for cotton runs from February through early June. Melons and fruiting vegetables such as peppers or tomatoes are raised spring and fall.
With less than 75mm (2.8in) of rain per year, we are a perfect place to test drought or heat tolerant technologies. And we have over 20 years of experience with drip irrigation.
RD4AG is the team to use to solve problems, generate data or generate samples any time of the year.
