Miramichi Soil & Crop Improvement Association

 

Northumberland Co. is the home of the farms which make up the Miramichi Soil & Crop Improvement Association. We are a diverse and scattered collection of producers who understand the importance of soil improvement and conservation as an integral part of sustainable crop production. We have been active since 1992 in the Miramichi area.

 

Amoung the activities held by the Miramichi S&CIA are field days, workshops, machinery demonstrations and meetings.

 

In 1999 MS&CIA worked with Claude Berthlm, Regional Field Crop Specialist NBDARD for an On-Farm Nutrient Management Project. A summer student was hired through CARD (Canadian Adaptation and Rural Development Fund).

 

In 2005 the MS&CIA partnered with the Northeast Soil and Crop Improvement Association to establish the NorthShore Agri-Conservation Club.

 

2007 has been a busy year for the MS&CIA. With a field day at the farm of the Farmer of the Year candidate and two separate machinery demo days there has been plenty to see and lots of opportunities to meet with fellow farm managers.
