will my soil test tell me?
After you have
returned your soil sample to CALMAR, we will return your
test results to you in the mail. These results will include:
Now, if you
happen to be a soil scientist, these results may be more to you
than just a bunch of meaningless numbers. However, we know that
even if you know what potassium is and even if you know what
potassium does and even if you know where to get potassium,
you may not know how much should be in the soil.
Because of this,
another feature of the CALMAR soil test report is a bar graph.
This will show you how your soil test ranks relative to optimum
levels. Using the bar graph you can easily see which nutrients are
low and which are high.
what is wrong with the soil is no good unless you have some idea
of what to do to correct it. This is what the CALMAR recommendation
is for. We will provide you with individual nutrient recommendations
for the three major nutrients needed by all plants:
We will also
recommend lime or sulfur as needed to attempt to optimize the soil
will be in terms of pounds of each nutrient or lime or sulfur that
should be applied per thousand square feet. We will provide information
that will help you determine what fertilizer is needed based on
your soil test and what you are trying to grow. Your local garden
center or extension agent can be a valuable resource in providing
even more specific information about products to use in your area.
