Farm & crop competitions
The Surrey County Agricultural Society encourages agriculture and agricultural employees in their various crafts to promote good farming. This is reflected by the organisation of several annual farm competitions. Judges are invited from other agricultural societies outside the Surrey area and spend up to two days inspecting the entries on farms spread across the county – which make up the rich pattern of our scenic countryside in Surrey.
There are keenly fought competitions for maize and maize clamp, barley, legumes, wheat, rape, peas and oats. Health of plants, quality of crop, density of growth, soil conditions and weed control are all major factors to be considered when judging.
