I got a soil test done out of curiosity. Last year I tilled I'm about 6-8 yards of well composted horse manure and 4 yards of sand/mixed with dirt a local landscaper dumped off. This year I was planning on tilling in about 6 yards of composted cow manure. The dairy down the street sells "sterilized" manure from a digester they have a deal with the power company

Patch is about 70 x 70

You will need to add more organic matter for that size of patch to raise the OM%. Follow what Western Labs recommends, but if you are confused how to do so just contact them.

Have your test with you and call the lab, if you tell them what you have,manure,leaf compost etc they will tell you what to do
