New Era Ag provides contract research services in the areas of product and variety evaluations. These services are offered in large field scale plots and small plots based on individual protocols and customer needs. Our designated research farm and multiple cooperator fields allow us to test products and varieties under a variety of soil conditions within the Swan Valley. All research fields are mapped for optimum placement of trials to reduce environmental variability. New Era Ag Research is the only contract research organization in the northern cropping zone of Manitoba.
