Land Judging
If you are interested in how the lay of the land works, how well crops can grow, or if land is suitable for a home, then land judging (also called soil judging) is the contest for you. In this contest we explore a landscape determining its characteristics. We judge the soil and the landscape around it. Land Judging consists of 2 parts: the physical characteristics of a land site and the interpretation of those characteristics.

Those FFA members who have a math/science brain thrive in this contest. The contest is held on 4 levels: district, regional, state, and national. There is no qualification to compete at the regional level. Top 4 regional winners advance to the state contest. State winning team advances to the national contest.
The district, regional, and state contests are held in September/October.
