Benefits of Soil and Crop Improvement Association
What do student bursaries, rainfall charts, webinar workshops
and producer education seminars have in common?
All are activities associated with the Norfolk Soil and Crop
Improvement Association, held for the benefit of local farmers.
Soil testing, conservation management and environmental
farm plans along with research on soils and crops also fall
under the umbrella of this organization.
There is a need for more people, especially in the south
eastern part of the county to become rainfall measuring stations.
Data produced from rainfall measurement is of benefit
not only to farmers but for research and natural resources.
Producer education is a big part of the important work the
Association does, as there are always new challenges facing
the producer. As climate appears to be changing, there needs
to be different methods or different crops to consider to work
within new normals.
The Norfolk Soil and Crop Improvement Association is there
to help in navigating change and adaptation.
