Today I got my results in for my soil test.
Ph is a little high 7.7
P153/76ppm. K267/134ppm
Ca 6512 to high?? If it is how do I get it down?
Mg585 also think this is to high how do I get it down.
And my micronutrients numbers
Iron5.3 Zinc6.2 Boron0.5 Cu0.4
Please help tell me what is to high or to low and how to fix it. Any help is much appreciated!

My NO3-N is 83
And my SO4-S is 62
That's all the numbers it gives me is my calcium to high?

Your Ca to Mg ratio is acceptable.
With your ca and mg that high though, you need more K.
potassium sulfate and jersey greensand
So don't add anything high in ca and mg
Site Search for the Langley soil estimator.
If you can post a pic of the soil report.

Based on the dual numbers you posted for Phos, Mag and K I'm assuming your Calcium is also listed in Lbs/acre. so the PPM value would be 3256. correct?

sorry is the mag also in Lbs/acre so ppm is 292?

I think they are it only gives a number nothing behind it on the so4-S and ca and mg.

if you are going to use my calculator to run your numbers make sure that you use PPM values. if not your ratios will be incorrect. If the test is done in lbs/acre divide that number in half to get the PPM value.
