Brookings, SD SGS Brookings has attained the status of a National Forage Testing Association Certified Laboratory.  The National Forage Testing Association (NFTA) is a joint effort of the American Forage and Grassland Council, National Hay Association and forage testing laboratories to improve the accuracy of forage testing among laboratories. Since its formation, reproducibility of lab results among laboratories has dramatically improved. Various lab methods have been reviewed and improved. Over 150 laboratories annually participate in the certification process.
