The Canada-Alberta Soil Conservation Initiative (CASCI) was a $34.2 million initiative of the governments of Alberta and Canada. CASCI was part of a long-term strategy developed by the governments to conserve soil resources in Alberta. Its goal was "to encourage practices which conserve Alberta's soil resource and sustain its long-term productivity, within practical economic limits and according to the soils capability".
In order to achieve it's goal CASCI supported a broad range of programs and projects from 1989 to 1992. Agricultural service boards, producer and non-producer groups and other agencies such as Prairie Farm Rehabilitation Administration (PFRA); Alberta Agriculture; Ducks Unlimited; and various researchers undertook a number of programs and projects to increase soil conservation. These included education, technology transfer, planning, land use change, research and monitoring.
