MONTICELLO - Ryan Smith, Paige Dilley, Emilie Gietzel, and Megan Lehr from the Monticello FFA Chapter traveled to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, to compete in land judging at the National Land and Range Judging Competition on May 7. Land judging, also known as soils judging, involves a variety of skills that determine the best use capabilities of the land based on a number of factors that students must assess. Students need to determine soil type, slope, structure, nutrient requirements, drainage issues and erosion potential, and then evaluate if the land is well-suited for cropland, pasture, woodland or wildlife use and what conservation measures should be followed.
