Soil Test Kit Results

I did a simple soil test on a few spots of soil very near the surface. This is the first time I used a soil test kit. So, the results may be skewed. I don’t understand the high phosphorus, but that test is based on cloudiness of the water and mine didn’t hardly register. The other tests are color based and hard to mess up.

The samples are from the sunflower bed, under the trio of pecan trees and under the pair of pecan trees. Taken at 1-4 inches.

Nitrogen = Medium

Phosphorus = Low-Medium

Potassium = High

pH ~7-7.5
