Another BIG SHOUT OUT to the freshman Agronomy team of Alex Walsh, Derick Shull and Paige Bradley. They were alternates to state contest. Agronomy is one of the hardest plant contest. They have to do a general knowledge test, a pesticide formulation and field calculations (thank you math teachers for teaching area & volume!! We use it!!), 50 plant and 50 seed identification (they have to memorize 99 plants and 99 seeds), hay judging, seed plate grading and judging, plant disorders (they have to identify the type of cause, the specific cause and identify the affected parts of the plant). So they did AMAZING!
