State Land Soil Competition

Last week four AG students competed at the State Land Soil Competition at Tarleton State University in Stephenville. The homesite contest participants judged the soil texture, slope, permeability, erosion, and runoff to determine how it would affect house foundations, lawns and landscape, septic systems, and sewage lagoons. They also had to analyze soil texture by feel and determine the percent slope with out the use of measurement devices.
