The land lab harvest is being completed today thanks to Langeland farms (shown below) with the corn running 197 bushels/acre according to early reports. The Soybean crop was harvested a week ago by A and J Farms and ran 969 total bushels off the 20 acre parcel.
Each year the crops are produced as an extension of the classroom and FFA Chapter as a teaching/learning method, a true outdoor classroom. Profits from this project are shared back with the Ag Program and FFA Chapter. It is the intent of the Advisory Committee to bring rewards and incentives to students and show them the merits of pursuing a career in Agriculture. If you have any interests in assisting with the Land Lab or have questions please contact members including Trevor Clayton, Kevin Schoenborn, Herb Zahm and Calvin Lindberg. Student members on the committee include Arden Bouchard and Matt Horling with FFA Advisor, Kent Bollinger also involved. The crops will be sold or marketed as a project in conjunction with our Independent Study Ag Marketing students.
Thanks again for all of this years sponsors and donors!!!!!
