Hello Group , My soil analysis came back today .... interesting stuff . here goes : ph 5 smp 4.7 ss 0.11 om 10.4 ( % ) p 1 k 581 ca 4.5 mg 2.2 n03 12 nh4 20 s 26.9 b 0.1 zn 0.1 mn 54 cu 0.1 fe 15 tb 8.2 I called the Dale at Agri-check and spoke with him for nearly an hour ... I'll summarize . His main concern was my almost non-existant phosphorus (p) . He says that 30 to 60 ppm is what I want .. I have 1 ppm . Without me bring it up , he says " I'll guarantee you that this grass has very shallow roots and is very sensitive to dry conditions ... it's a wonder it didn't just die " ... I guess my aggressive watering last year saved me (?) . My PH is low , but his recommendation is to first get my P levels adjusted properly . He said that my organic matter at 10.4 % appears artificially high ... did I add something ? I explained that this was basically forest soil before I created the ballfield . He said that this level will drop over time . My intent is to get some P on the field asap . I'm sure it is very obvious that I desperately need guidance ... THANK YOU to all who have responded !! Am I going in the right direction ?? J.D.
