The National Crops Judging Contest consists of three parts: plant and seed identification, commercial grain grading, and seed analysis. The Kansas City and Chicago contests represent the national finals of collegiate crops competition for the year. Preparation for crops contests teaches evaluation of crops for quality relative to certification, viability and marketing. Students learn in great depth many things which can be valuable regardless of their chosen profession in agronomy. More information can be found at 2013 Contest Rules.
