Crops Judging Team
Crops Judging contests serve as amazing cross-disciplinary opportunities to both learn and showcase relevant agronomic knowledge and skills. Through preparation and participating in these contests, students develop a broad knowledge basis and hone their agronomic problem-solving abilities with these contests pulling many questions and components from professional accreditation programs such as the Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) program.
Interested students should contact Jared Stander, team coach at email@example.com for more information.
Soil Judging Team
Soil judging provides an opportunity for students to study soils through direct experience in the field. Students learn to describe soil properties, identify different kinds of soils and associated landscape features, and interpret soil information for agriculture and other land uses.
Weed Science Team
Students on the Weed Science Team compete in regional and national contests in multiple events ranging from identifying weeds to solving complex weed management challenges faced by farmers and land managers. This educational experience offers students a chance to apply what they’ve learned in the classroom and to network with some of the top talent working in weed science today.
