Enhancing Soil & Crop

Sustainability in New Brunswick


NBSCIA participates in research with parties interested in accessing funding sources where applications must come from an agricultural producer associations.


Research activities involve either soils or crops as the main component of the project. Some of the on-going research activities are:


  • Evaluating mustard as a biofumigant in strawberry production
  • Improving on-farm forage quality and quantity
  • Evaluating reed canarygrass for biomass production
  • Evaluating rhodiola rosea cultivars for biomass and bioactive components


Several activities identify new varieties and hybrids that will improve yields of grain production systems practiced by New Brunswick producers.


Forage and other perennial crops trials will identitfy varieties with better winter survival as well as identifying other crops with potential in opening up new markets.


  • Regional cereal and oilseed variety evaluation trials
  • Regional silage and grain corn hybrid evaluation trials
  • Regional forage variety evaluation trials


What can NBSCIA do for your Association?

We are always on the lookout for research partners and we are also capable of administering research projects for other associations. We are looking to expand our research projects to include other sectors.
