Ball ours up and let it dry and it would kill you if you got hit in the head with it.

GDoctor,
I envy you guys that have the creme of the crop at your disposal. You would think that a Agricultural arena would have much better. I have two Universities.......one at 10 minutes disposal and one 5 hours away.........both use the lab in Cabot Arkansas. The results is real extensive and does not convey OM. Like I said earlier.......most if not all results tell you the same darn thing to do..............triple 13 and lime. WTH!!!

I get those kind of recommendations from the University as well. So they do not do my soil testing.

The soil actually becomes red clay usable to make pottery.

Bingo. Take advantage of the drought and cracked soil to get some organic matter into the profile.

Learn how to interpret the soil test and you don't need generic recommendations.
