Specialty Crops Disease & Insect Reliable Trials

Contacts

The vast majority of our trial work is conducted on A.C.D.S. Research, Inc. property, where we have our own weather station.  For the very few trials we run off-site, we have a long-standing relationship with the growers.  Therefore, there is no danger of trial loss due to grower "overspray" or miscommunications over harvestable areas.


We also own, maintain and operate all of our equipment for trial activities and maintenance.  All of our efficacy trials use the Agricultural Research Manager (ARM) program, and we efficiently report complete, correct field results that have been quality controlled before reported.  We have also integrated the use of the CL920 Tablet PC by Motion (Gylling Data Management, Inc. ARM Tablet), which allows us to more efficiently rate trials and take photographic evidence of what we are seeing in the field and report it back to the the research coordinator.
