Soil judging provides an opportunity for students to study soils through direct experience in the field. Students learn to describe soil properties, identify different kinds of soils and associated landscape features, and interpret soil information for agriculture and other land uses. These skills are developed by studying a variety of soils formed from a wide range of parent materials and vegetation in different topographic settings. Students gain an appreciation for soil as a natural resource by learning about soils and their formation.

Students must enroll in SOIL 279 (Soil Evaluation) in order to be on the Soil Judging Team.
