2014 Land Judging Contest
Several FAESS members (Carter, Ellis, Rochette, Sawka, Smith, and Veenstra) were present on Wednesday 3/26 for the digging of the soil pits in Sebring. We observed three drainage classes of Spodosols (Myakka depressional, Myakka, and Pomello). It was fantastic. Please visit landjudging.org for pictures and video of the event.
