    UD’s Soils Judging Team traveled to the National Soils Judging competition this past semester after taking first place at the regional competition in Pennsylvania. The team utilized this past year to practice identifying different soil types and other aspects of the soil that help them identify the geological history of the soil. The students used “practice pits” around campus and at neighboring farms with the help of their advisors and professionals in the soil science sphere, Phil King and Jenwei Tsai, to prepare for the competition.
