got my soil test results back
got the results back from my soil sample, not good, ph is down about 4.6, they say I need approx. 7 ton per acre to get it to where it is suppose to be. Cost is about$10 a ton. Problem is, I've all ready planted milo in the plot last weekend, and the winter wheat is already a foot tall. soybeans won't go in for another month or so. Maybe I'll wait for this winter and do it all in one shot, but that means I'll be dumping the stuff on the new winter wheat that I'll be planting in Aug. Will this stuff (lime) hurt the winter wheat when applied on top of it? And what about the bean stubble, I had plans to just bush hog 1/2 it down for the turkeys and leave the other 1/2 for the deer to forage on. Will they still come in and feed off of it with this lime on it? any thoughts would be apprecitated, thanks.
