Land Judging Contest

FFA land judging contestants
For the first time, the Williamson County Fair is excited to host a Land Judging Contest in partnership with FFA Clubs in Tennessee. Soil judging helps students to develop an appreciation for soil. The purpose of this contest is to encourage the in-depth study of soils and to provide students with a practical, hands-on environment for judging and evaluating soils.

Prizes will be awarded to school chapter winners, as well as individual placements.

Land judging tells us how well the land can produce crops or be used for other purposes. Soil characteristics, climate, and topography are good clues to the soil’s capabilities, but close examination of the soil texture, structure, depth, permeability, reaction, degree of erosion, slope, drainage, and flooding are necessary to classify land into capability classes. In land judging, the major factors affecting how the land can be used must be determined. These factors are used to correctly recommend conservation practices and fertilizers for conserving the soil.

Entry forms due no later than July 31, 2023
Contest to be held August 8, 2023

Only the first twenty (20) teams will be accepted. All teams will be notified via email to confirm registration. A waiver and sample score card will be sent with confirmation.
