Riverside students learn to evaluate soil

FFA 1015

Riverside FFA members recently participated in a session where they learned about the soil evaluation process at the school’s FFA farm.

Students learn how to judge the land for farming uses and also for urban uses, such as for septic systems, roads, lawns, lawns and gardens, constructing buildings and basements.

Steve Titus assisted the FFA chapter with digging the practice pits.

In other FFA activities, the chapter members competed at the Hardin County Soil Judging Invitational during September. The urban judging team of Tanner Wiley, Ella Jackson, Chris Cox and James Walters finished second out of 39 teams.

Individually, Ella Jackson placed second overall out of 131 students. Also, a Riverside agriculture judging team received eighth-place out of 82 teams.
