    I just recently received the results from the soil test that was done by Scotts. The guy was pretty much usless in his explanation; he actually stated that he "uses fertilizer, but doesn't know how to read the results". I am looking for some recommendations based of the following results. Thanks in advance! Tom :usflag:

    PH- 5.9
    Buffer PH -6.17
    P- 200+ lbs per acre available
    K- 119 lbs per acre available
    Ca- 1567 lbs per acre available
    Mg- 218 lbs per acre available
    CEC- 14.9

    Calculated Values - % base saturation
    K- 1.0
    Ca- 26
    Mg- 6
    H- 66.8
