What ADG Can do for you

Grower Education.  We have a long list of influential growers that have expressed interest in trying new products.  If you have a product that you want “center of influence” growers to experience, we can make this happen.  Each year, we operate a number of split or paired field comparisons for various products.


Research: ADG has conducted research trials on nearly every major and minor crop grown in Washington. About 70% of ADG research trials in 2012 focused on pest management of insects, nematodes, weeds, or diseases, 20% of research trials were focused on fertility research, and 10% of trials involved varietal evaluations. Research can be conducted using center pivot, drip, rill, or solid set irrigation.


Consulting. Dr. Schreiber has extensive experience in state and federal pesticide registration, including Section 18 emergency exemptions, Section 3 and Section 24c registrations. Each year ADG handles multiple Section 24c and Section 18 registrations, and collaborates extensively with the USDA’s IR-4 Project.  Dr. Schreiber is a member of the IR-4 Commodity Liaison Committee, and ADG works with most of the commodity groups in Washington and many of Idaho and Oregon’s agricultural associations. 


ADG has nineteen acres of organic land, certified with the Washington State Department of Agriculture and has developed the largest private organic research program in the Pacific Northwest
