Someone decipher this for me, please... | It's my soil test results and they're in Adobe PDF format. It's around 400kb if you're worried about download time. The lime per acre I get, the rest of it is Greek. :?

want questions do you have exactly ?

I read that you need to put 2.5 tons/acre on field DAHLM


Field POND:
3.5 tons/acre

Field DRIVE:
4 tons per acre


Field POWER:
4 tons per acre.

Based on what you are planting (crop), apply the suggested fertilizer rate on the far rigth column.

Refer to each "comment" number where it tells you..

I need to get some soil test done as well :)

What do I need to add besides lime, nitrogen and phosphate??

Is the stuff to the left of the lime anything that I need to add? Or is that just something for the lab to reference?

the way I read it...

take field POND for example, using crop :32

its telling you 3.5 tons lime per acre. For the next three years, your plants will need 80# of nitrogen and 30# phos...

So each year you put

80# nitrogen per acre, AND 65# of 0-46-0 per acre
OR
80# nitroger per acrea AND 150# 0-20-0 per acre.

Also refer to the comments for that Field/Crop..

Does that help ? i'm learning too, so I could be mistaken..

Yeah, I just wanted to make sure I was reading it correctly...lol.

It's only about 2.5 acres of food plots, hopefully this won't be expensive. :shock:

If you can, go to the CO-OP and buy the lime in bulk... much cheaper.

That's what I plan on doing, hopfully with some kind of buggy to spread it with.

Reb you and gtk have it deciphered but fertilizer buggys wont spread lime unless it is the kind in little pellets (very expensive) I learned the hard way also its not recommended to put out more than 1 to 1 1/2 tons lime per acre at a time and do another soil test after 3 months

You may need to put part of the lime out and get plots planted then finish the lime in the spring or summer Looks like you got some pretty good dirt if all you need is lime and nitrogen. Seriously too much lime at one time can burn a crop.

I'll probably do half now and half later, like you're saying. I'm going to get the nitrogen and phosphate this weekend and put it out when I finish spreading seed. Ran out last weekend and haven't been back to get more seed.

So far, according to prices at the co-op, I might get away with spending less than $200 on this stuff. I figure we have no more than 2.5 acres and the rates they want us to spread this stuff, I don't think it's going to be bad. 8)

Looks like ya'll got it figured out. I'd split that lime too. Not only will the powder-like lime be cheaper, but it will give you better results than the pelletized. The nitrogen should give you a huge boost early with the plots.

Well I was quoted $30 a ton for lime and that's in a buggy.

This is probably a stupid question but how do I spread the powder like lime?? I've never dealt with it personally. Every farm I worked on had someone else come spread lime and such. :oops: :oops:

We have a spreader truck that we spread with. We load it with a backhoe and they just dump on the ground in one of our parking spots.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT ALL YOU'RE PLANING ON PLANTING, BUT SINCE IT IS A SMALLER PLOT, YOU COULD PLANT SOME LADINO IN THERE AND THAT WOULD HELP YOUR NITROGEN SITUATION OUT SOME. ALSO, SINCE THE CLOVER COMES BACK YEAR AFTER YEAR, IT WOULD CUT OUT THE REPLANTING. JUST CLIP, AND FERTILIZE.
