President’s message

Ag-Quest, Inc. began operations in 1983 with the aim of providing top quality, cost effective research to the Agricultural Industry. Ag-Quest has gained the confidence and respect of national and international clients by focusing on three key areas:

  • Application of sound scientific principles to field trials,

  • Application of knowledge and experience in commercial
    farming to protocol development, and

  • Maintaining a competent, professional staff.

Ag-Quest prides itself on providing quality field research in the areas of product and fertilizer efficacy, variety development, confined field trials, environmental fate trials (GLP) and cropping systems trials. Each of our three divisions, Efficacy, Variety and Environmental Fate, has a dedicated Project Coordinator.

Ag-Quest stations are located at Minto MB, Elm Creek MB, Saskatoon SK and Taber AB. These research facilities provide access to a broad range of soil and climatic conditions.
