Enhancing Soil & Crop
Sustainability in New Brunswick

New Brunswick Soil & Crop Improvement Association

The soil and crop movement in New Brunswick began in 1977 through the formation of several local associations. The number of locals grew, and a provincial board comprised of two directors from each local was established -- New Brunswick Soil and Crop Improvement Association.

We have eight active locals: Northeast (CCNE), Northshore (Bathurst), Moncton, Chignecto (Sackville), Kings County, Central (Fredericton), Northwest (Edmundston) and Carleton County. Directors at both the local and provincial levels are volunteers. Annual membership fees are set by the provincial board with a portion remitted to the locals.

Today is the day Sussex Soil and Crop kicks off the first of 4 Local AGMs featuring Karen Haugen-Kozyra, MSc, PAg, Present Viresco Solutions. 

Karen obtained a Biological Sciences Diploma from NAIT, BSc in Plant Sciences, and MSc in Soil Microbiology and Biochemistry from the University of Alberta. Karen is also a registered Professional Agrologist with the Alberta Institute of Agrology.

Karen has over 25 years of experience in agricultural greenhouse gas measurement, modeling, and climate change/environmental policy development – spanning her tenure at the provincial.  Her most significant contribution while she worked in the public and not-for-profit sectors was her work at a national level, with federal-provincial and territorial governments on the Canadian National Offset Quantification Team (NOQT). Karen, through her capacity on the Team, designed the protocol development process, represented the agricultural sector in Canada, and coordinated the development of several agricultural quantification protocols. In 2007, Karen was seconded to Climate Change Central, a not-for-profit established by the Government of Alberta. There, Karen led the implementation of the necessary market processes, infrastructure, and tools needed to get the Alberta Carbon Offset Market off the ground. In that role, Karen and her Team leveraged the previous NOQT work to help build sound rules, platforms, science-based quantification protocols, tools, and infrastructure (e.g. registry) needed to facilitate the development of a Carbon Offset Market in Alberta. Department of Agriculture in Alberta, then at the not-for-profit Climate Change Central, and now in the private sector.
