Crops Judging Team

General Info

The Oklahoma Panhandle State University Crops Judging Team competes in regional and national contests each year, consistently placing in the top 5. They compete for individual honors as well as team recognition against agricultural universities from across the nation.

The crop judging competition is an intensive examination of students’ agronomic skills and knowledge designed around the Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) program of the American Society of Agronomy (ASA). The four-part contest is made up of a math test, general knowledge test, plant and seed identification, and lab practical.
