The test came back pH a tiny bit to low but the sodium, sulfur, potassium and phosphorus are way to high. Manganese to low. We are square foot gardening. Raised beds. Made. Mel's. Mix with 1/3 Vermiculite 1/3 peat and 1/3 Eko compost(which comes from yard waste through the city. ANY ONE have any ideas on how to get things a little more balanced? Would lime help at all?
I'm not currently an expert on soil science. However, it looks like adding extra lime (for calcium and to raise the pH) and especially manganese should help.
Low manganese is probably going to be an even worse problem after you add calcium/lime, since manganese is less available in more alkaline soil and more available in acidic soil. You'll want to use manganese sulfate instead of manganese EDTA, as the other may make it even less available. However, your sulfur is high; I'm not sure if manganese sulfate will be a problem there.
I think that the bar graph may tell you availability, and not the soil content, exactly (maybe I'm wrong). So, what I would recommend is correcting your soil pH first, and then doing another soil test, and see how the availability of the other nutrients changes. Changing the pH will change the availability of different minerals (whether for better or worse depends, but if you're correcting your pH, it's usually for the better).
Anyway, that high boron concerns me (more than the sodium). I wonder what caused it. If that doesn't go away after correcting the pH, you may need to do something to help wash it (and the sodium) out, provided you have water that isn't high in boron.
Adding lime should help with your sulfur problem, I'm guessing.
Blacksmith37's idea of adding nothing to the soil might be the best option. If you do that, you might try growing anything that will grow in it (including weeds) for a season or two and seeing if they use up much of the high nutrients. Mixing other soil into it may also help, if you have enough. Here's a list of more sodium-tolerant plants. Here's a PDF about plants that are sensitive and tolerant to boron.
If you have soft water or such, you'll want to stop watering with it.
Go get some sterilized potting soil (without added fertilizer or water holding sponges/gels) and redo your planter. Potting soil is almost always in the proper pH zone neutral to a bit acidic. I am so glad you did a soil test!! How big is your garden? Please, a picture. Perhaps there is too much soil necessary to replace for your raised beds.
Yes, lime would help! Then I would add a simple balanced fertilizer next year that is lower in Nitrogen than the P and the K. Do you have a way to test pH on your own? Have you added any fertilizer? What is the drainage like for your raised beds? Raised beds are almost pots and should be treated like potted artificial ecosystems. I am assuming these are out of doors. Tell us more about the construction of these beds!
Good for you to get a soil test! I am impressed!
