Fairfield FFA judges soil


The Fairfield FFA sent 11 of its members to the district soil judging competition on Sept. 22. Six were competitors on the rural soil judging team and six were on the urban soil judging team. The rural team studied phosphorus level and its ability to withstand and grow a productive crop, while the urban team studied if you could landscape on this ground or if you would be able to build things like a basement for a house on that particular land. Both teams had to find things like slope, landforms, soil type and bedrock appearance. The urban team finished seventh out of 17 and the rural team finished 13th out of 21. The CDE is useful to anyone that is a farmer, landscaper or engineer because the land quality determines what you can do with it.
