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:

  • Establishing Alfalfa with a Corn Companion Crop
  • Oat and Winter Wheat Cultivar Development
  • NB Weather Monitoring & Mapping
  • Grass-roots Level Tool for Systematic Field Evaluation of Soil Health
  • Runoff Control for City of Edmundston
WW harvest 2023 2

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 identity varieties with better winter survival as well as identifying other crops with potential in opening up new markets.

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.
