We would like to express our warmest congratulations to, senior scholar, Moises Umanzor on his National Soils Competition win! Moises and his team from the University of Maryland’s College of Agriculture and Natural Resources took 1st place in the recent 57th National Soils Competition, where contestants from 24 universities from seven regions around the country inspected various soil pits and worked to correctly identify, evaluate and describe five soil profiles. Combined individual and group scores for the event put Maryland in 1st place overall, ahead of Kansas State (2nd), Univ. of WI Platteville (3rd), Purdue Univ. (4th) and Univ. of WI Stephens Point (5th).
This is the 4th time Maryland has won the national title over the 57 year history of the event. Pictured below is Moises and his winning team!
