The Kentville Research and Development Centre was established in 1911 in Kentville, Nova Scotia in Western Nova Scotia’s Annapolis Valley. It also operates the Nappan Research Farm, located near Amherst, Nova Scotia.

The Centre is a Minor Use Pesticide Program site, and is accountable for Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s only beef research program in the Atlantic Region, conducted at the Nappan Experimental Farm. Nappan Experimental Farm is one of the original five experimental farms established by the Dominion Experimental Farms Act. The Centre is responsible for science activities in one of nine intensively-studied watersheds in Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s WEBS (Watershed Evaluation of Beneficial Management Practices) program.

The Centre focuses its research in three key areas:

Facilities at the Kentville Research and Development Centre

Current research activities

Improvements in crop production, handling and storage

Protecting our food in a sustainable environment

Safe, nutritious food - a national priority

Sustainable production systems for livestock
