Join us on Saturday, June 22, 2024 for Ag PhD Scouting & Scholarships near Baltic, SD!

At Scouting & Scholarships, we have several different outdoor stations and split up into smaller groups to give better hands-on learning. Here are some of the topics we’ve covered in the past:

  • Weed, insect, and disease identification, scouting and control
  • How to pull a soil sample & read a soil test
  • Using root pits to understand soil health, compaction, roots and more
  • How to pull plant tissue tests and interpret data
  • Soil and crop health benefits of drainage tile
  • The impacts of using natural soil microbes in production agriculture
  • Corn & Soybean growth and development, identifying growth stages and taking standing counts
  • What you can learn by digging up plant roots
  • How to compare and evaluate seed variety & trait performance

This event is geared toward high school and college students, but anyone with a desire to learn more about agronomy is welcome to attend.

Plus, we will be awarding a number of college scholarships to attendees that will be enrolled in any post-secondary school in the fall.
