The Land Judging Career Development Event provides students the opportunity to determine a field’s potential for erosion by assigning a land classification and determining the correct use and treatment practices for selected sites. FFA members must consider topsoil texture and thickness, effective depth, permeability of subsoil, slope, erosion, and drainage.

As the state winning team, they will represent Georgia at the National Land and Range Judging Contest in Oklahoma City, OK in May. 

Dr. Walt Parks, Bleckley County High School FFA advisor, was the team’s coach.  The Land Judging Career Development Event is sponsored by Georgia Farm Credit Associations as a special project of the Georgia FFA Foundation.
