Clayton Lauchland, of Lodi, recently competed in the National FFA Agriscience Fair where he was awarded with a gold pin in honor of his project. It examined how much leaf defoliation is economically productive for the winegrape grower.
The student was successful at the state level before moving on to the national fair. All 580 participants received their gold, silver or bronze pins and were honored at the agriscience awards presentation at the National FFA Convention, Oct. 20-23, in Indianapolis.
Lauchland is a member of the Lodi High School FFA organization.
