Nereta air field was an airfield 100 kilometers southeast of Riga, Latvia.
The airfield was built by the Soviet Union in the 1975-1985 timeframe. It was used for agricultural activities by state-run Aeroflot. It consists of a small runway, two taxiways to a small platform and a hangar-like building to the west of the runway.

Latvian Aviation lists the airfields condition in 2010 as 'unusable'. Trees are growing immediately next to the runway and there are foreign objects (timber) on the runway. 
In 2013, MyAirfields listed the site as bad and temporarily "unusable at the moment due to trees around and foreign objects on the runway. However, this airfield could be reverted to usable state with minor investments."
The airfield is uncertified, meaning it is officially closed to all taffic.
