Our regional FFA qualifying event and local Ag Technology Contest will use the National FFA Agricultural Mechanics Career Development Event as a model. Limitations imposed by facilities, equipment, and time will force us to make some changes.
The Ag Tech-Ag Mechanics Contest and the FFA Ag Mechanics Qualifying Event will be run simultaneously. The “specific theme” will be Integrated Pest Management. Updated information regarding this event can be found at the following web site: http://web.missouri.edu/~schumacherl/natcon.html. As the national event is developed, the content may change slightly. These changes are posted on the above listed web site.
The event description posted on this web site, as of Feb 1, 2010, will be used to develop our regional event and contest.
