Soil Science: The Center of It All
The Canadian Society of Soil Science (CSSS), Manitoba Soil Science Society (MSSS), and the Canadian Society of Agricultural and Forest Meteorology (CSAFM) are pleased to invite agrologists/agronomists to their Joint Meeting in Winnipeg on July 22-25, 2013.
MIA is pleased to provide sponsorship support for this important national conference and encourages registered and practicing members to attend. There will be credits available for agronomists...and single day registration is an option for those who can’t afford to be out of the field for the entire three days.

Information for the Public: Unauthorized Practice
Practicing Agrology without being registered is called "Unauthorized Practice" in Manitoba. This activity is contrary to "The Agrologists Act (Section 15)". While most companies and their employees are working well with MIA in this area, there are still instances where more information and education is needed. To protect the public, MIA reviews information and complaints about individuals who may be practicing Agrology without being registered.
