4-H Crop Scouting Event
The Center of 4-H Youth Development and the University of Minnesota Extension is excited to announce a 4-H Crop Scouting Event beginning this summer. 4-H and FFA teams are invited to participate. The 4-H Crop Scouting event will allow youth to test their crop-scouting skills on agronomics, weed, insect, and disease scouting through outdoor hands-on activities. “This is a great opportunity for youth in grades 7th-12th to showcase what they know and to advance their crop scouting skills,” says, Brian McNeill, University of Minnesota Extension Educator. The top two teams in Minnesota will advance to compete in the national competition in Iowa.
The 4-H Crop Scouting event will take place on July 29th, south of Benson, MN. The teams will test their knowledge and learn about topics such as insects, diseases, corn and soybean growth stages, sprayer technology, forages and many more. Registration is open and teams can sign up at: https://z.umn.edu/4hcropscoutingregistration. Registration will close June 1st!
