A practical guide to interpreting soil test results for farmers and other stewards of the earth wanting to understand what nutrients are available to plants and learn how to more effectively grow crops, turfgrass and other plants. This is a decent place for a novice to start with interpretation of soil test results. The first half of the /5(10). “Interpreting Soil Test Results is a handy compendium. Soil scientists who write for clients and the clients who read their reports, both in Australia and elsewhere, should find this book valuable.” Review of the Second Edition from European Journal of Soil Scie – ()Cited by:
To gain the most benefit from soil testing, it is important to become familiar with all aspects of your soil test report. This guide explains each soil test parameter on a soil test report. There is also basic information on each nutrient or soil property and how it pertains to soils in this region. lab data. We believe that test results are meaningless without interpretation and education. Interpretation and education go hand-in-hand. For instance, if we test a root zone mix, interpretation merely tells the professional whether it is an appropriate material with which to build a Size: KB.
SOIL TESTING CONVENTIONS IN THE U.S. Soil testing is far from a uniform practice across the United States. Soil fertility testing is really the combination of three discrete but interrelated processes: analysis, interpretation, and recommendation (Eckert,). Soil Analysis: An Interpretation Manual is a practical guide to soil tests. It considers what soil tests are, when they can be used reliably and consistently, and discusses what limits their application. It is the first nationally accepted publication that is appropriate for Australian soils and first three chapters review the general principles and concepts of soil testing.

You can use soil tests as a diagnostic tool or to identify trends through time. To obtain meaningful test results, you must sample soil correctly, at the same time each year, and you must maintain records.
This is a decent place for a novice to start with interpretation of soil test results. The first half of the book is spent on a pretty basic overview of the function of nutrients and general ideas for balancing them in different soil types. The entire 2nd half of the book is sample test results and an accompanying analysis (ie: practical examples).4/5(19).
Interpreting Soil Analysis is one of Midwest Laboratories' most popular publications. This brochure will walk the reader through how to read the soil test. We explain the individual analysis and calculations.
We also discuss the desired levels of different nutrients and soil properties. The INTERPRETATION section focuses on four of the important Soil Test Results (Phosphorus, Potassium, pH, and Soluble Salts) and gives an explanation of them in graphical format.
A short explanation of how to read the graphs is 2/3 of the way down the left-hand column of the Explanation of Soil Test Report page.
Soil test reports vary from laboratory to laboratory; however, they all report key results of pH, lime test index (LTI) or buffer pH, phosphorous, and potassium.
These results are used to develop fertilizer recommendations. Other useful measures on the report, such as cation exchange capacity (CEC), organic matter, and base saturation, further define soil factors related to nutrient.
This publication provides an overview of soil testing and general guidelines for interpreting soil test results for nitrogen, phosphorus, sulfur, potassium, calcium, magnesium, boron, zinc, copper, manganese, iron, molybdenum, chloride, sodium, soluble salts, organic matter, cation exchange capacity, pH, and lime.
For each test, the document describes what is measured, recommends how and when. In images 1 and 2, the soil tests are broken into four sections. Image 1. Soil test report broken into four sections with recommendations for corn grain, corn silage, and planting alfalfa-grass.
