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.

You may be wondering, looking back on a summer with persistent rain and cooler temperatures, how did this years CHU and rainfall compare with last? Have a look at these maps comparing the data for the month of August. The maps on top are accumulated CHUs and on bottom are accumulated precipitation. The maps on the left are from this year and on the right are from 2022. Take note of the large difference in accumulated precipitation and CHU for the southern region of New Brunswick. 

Peut-√™tre que tu te demandes, avec le recul sur un √©t√© avec la pluie persistent et les plus frais temp√©ratures, comment se compare lUTM et la pr√©cipitation cet ann√©e avec la derni√®re? Regarder a ces cartes qui comparent les donn√©es pour le mois dao√Ľt. Les cartes sur dessus sont laccumulation de lUTM et du bas laccumulation de pr√©cipitation. Les cartes sur la gauche sont de cette ann√©e et a droit, de 2022. Remarquer la grosse diff√©rence entre la pr√©cipitation et lUTM accumule pour la r√©gion vers le sud de Nouveau Brunswick.Image attachment
