2019 NACTA Soil Judging: The Road to Murray - Day 0

The UMN Soil Judging Team made it safely to Suffolk, VA for the evening. We are staying near the Great Dismal Swamp NWR and made a stop there just before sunset to see Lake Drummond and discuss chemical processes in saturated soils. Tomorrow brings Ultisols formed in marine sediments at the VA Tech Tidewater Agricultural Research and Education Center with Dr. Ben Davies, a 2018 graduate of the UMN Department of Soil, Water and Climate!
