Land Judging Program

Nelson County Land Judging Program

Phil in Pit

 Land Judging is a national program open to 4-H and FFA participants.  It is designed to give youth a better appreciation for a precious natural resource that provides us with everyday commodities. Soils have many uses, and land judging can help youth understand basic soil differences, know how soil properties affect crop growth, know why soils respond differently to management practices, determine land capability class, and determine proper use and treatment. The Land Judging Contest is based on soil texturing, estimating slope, and determining the depth of surface.

The 2019 Land Judging Workouts will begin on June 24th. Contact Brooks at brooks.warner@ndsu.edu or 701-247-2521 for more information.
