4-H Crops project

February 12, 2014

CROPS & SMALL GRAINS


No State Fair Entries


All crop records should be completed (estimate yield and use current market prices), signed by the leader and turned in by July 1.

All record sheets should state if crop was from an irrigated field or a non-irrigated field.

For all Crops entries, the exhibitor should include a narrative summary of his or her experience with the project, such as when the crop was planted, weeding/herbicide use, insects/pesticide use, other special circumstances, and harvest date (if applicable). The narrative should be typed or legibly handwritten, and enclosed in a clear plastic sheet cover, sealed baggie, or envelope.
