So you've spent a lot of money and time on soil tests, analysis of the tests and purchasing all the amendments. Now the hard work. Spreading hundreds of pounds of fertilizers. If you don't spread the amendments equally, all your analysis and tests are a waste of time !! Too much in one spot and you have an excess. Too little in another won't be enouigh. I divide my patch into 6 sections. Then I weigh the amendments into 6 portions ...especially the small amounts of micros and borax etc. Then add 5 to 8 lbs of something bigger like SOP or gypsum in a 5 gallon pail and mix with a paddle mixer in an electric drill as in the pic I posted. Spreading and mixing will give a much better distribution and less problems.
