The Ontario Soil & Crop Improvement Association (OSCIA) is a not-for-profit farm organization that represents all commodity groups across the province.  They are leaders in producer education, local association development, program delivery and consumer outreach. There are 53 county/district associations in 11 Regions.  Field days, crop tours and local workshops are regularly hosted to introduce new methods of crop and soil management. 

A variety of workshops and webinars are offered at no cost by OSCIA as part of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) to assist Ontario farm businesses in identifying strengths and weaknesses in a variety of areas that influence the farm’s profitability, productivity and sustainability.  Workshops and webinars include The Environmental Farm Plan (EFP), Bio Security and Growing Your Farm Profits (GYFP).
