Interpreting Soil Test Results Sustainable Agriculture

The soil tests were run by different procedures, to provide examples from around the U.S. Interpretations of a number of commonly used soil tests—relating test levels to generalfertility categories—are given later in the chapter (see tables 21.3 and 21.4). Many labs estimate the cation exchange capacity that would exist at pH 7 (or even higher). Because we feel that the soil's current

Vigilance in Soil Testing and Scouting CropLife

The vast majority of producers do broad-spectrum soil tests, which check everything from pH, CEC, P, K and base saturation levels, but the frequency and the density of the sampling varies. "Fertilizer retailers often do a minimal level of sampling every second or fourth season. But less than 25% of producers (not acres) do extensive grid or zone testing every other year," says

Typically, each soil sample sent to a soil testing lab weighs about two pounds. One acre of land, six inches deep, weighs about 2,000,000 lbs. If a 160 acre field is soil sampled to six inches, a two pound soil sample must be representative of 320 million pounds of soil. The soil sample would represent about 0.0000006 per cent of the field. This is an extremely small representation of
