Form a team and compete on your knowledge of crop scouting! 

Crop scouting is a way to inspect crops for potential outcomes and risks. Crop scouts are people who take systematic observations and predict crop production. They look at factors such as weather, inputs like pesticides and herbicides, and risks such as disease and pests. 

When you're crop scouting, you're using science skills like observation, data collection and predicting outcomes. You'll also learn good farming practices like integrated pest management.

Visit farms to learn what makes crop production higher or lower - factors like the weather, cover crops, herbicides and pesticide use.

Agronomy is the science of using plants for food, fuel, feed and fiber. Horticulture is about growing plants for food and decoration. If you like science or plants, you'll like 4-H agronomy and horticulture!
