Soil test will determine fertilizer use, it is a process by which elements, such as; phosphorus (P), potassium (K), nitrogen (N), calcium, magnesium, sodium, sulfur, manganese, copper and zinc are chemically removed from the soil and measured for their “plant growth” content within the sample. The quantity of available nutrients in the sample determines the amount of fertilizer that is recommended. A soil test also measures humic matter agriculture, industry, and the environment, soil pH, and exchangeable acidity. These analyses indicate whether lime is needed and, if so, how much to apply.
Soil testing is a great way to determine fertilizer use for growing healthy plants, trees, flowers, bushes and much more.
