River Ridge FFA Wins State Agronomy Career Development Event

June 3, 2022 CDE

MADISON, Wis. – The River Ridge FFA Chapter was named the state winning Agronomy Career Development Event Team. Team members include Jared Breuer, Logan Drone, Ian Adrian and Bryr Clark. Their advisor is Madeline Esser. Henry Danielson from the Cadott FFA was the top individual. His advisor is Keith Becker.

Through this contest, participants illustrate an understanding of sustainable agriculture and environmental stewardship by identifying crops, weeds, seeds, insects, diseases, plant nutrient deficiencies, and plant disorders. Additionally, students must demonstrate their knowledge in the areas of grading and pricing crops.

River Ridge will now represent Wisconsin FFA in competition at the National FFA Career Development Events to be held in October in Indianapolis, Indiana during the 95th National FFA Convention. The Agronomy CDE is sponsored on the state level by United Cooperative. The National sponsors are Bayer and Nutrien Ag Solutions.

Career Development Events engage students in developing their communication, decision-making and teamwork skills to promote future career success.
