HSU’s Soil Judging Team places 3rd in Region 6!

Thanks to Dr. Garrett Liles of CSU Chico for hosting the event. Region 6 of the Agronomy Society of America-sponsored contest includes universities from Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, New Mexico and Nevada, although only four teams from California competed this year.
