There's alot of difference in lime also, some limes take a couple of years to dissolve. I've been told to use a powder or water mix and spray the lime as this works faster. Like ronn said, the more we learn the better our $ go. This plot planting, there is a lot to it and many reasons for it to fail. Read everything you can before spending. The first thing I will do for any new food plot is to kill everything and start with a weed seed free soil and get the lime to it and disk it in. Even with a 7.6 ph I could tell the difference in plant growth with unlimed areas. Clovers put nitrogen into the soil so you should use a fertilizer with a low first number after plants are established. Keep the weeds out and hope mother nature puts down some rain after seeding.

Angry When trying to cniuo

When trying to cniuogfre the share and follow plugin using the settings dashboard the changes will not save. When I click any of the update settings buttons I am automatically taken to the wordpress general settings page, when I click back into the share and follow settings dashboard the changes are not stored.Any thoughts on what might be causing this?I've tried deleting the plugin and re-installing, thus far this has not resolved the issue.Very frustrating as it seems like such an amazing plugin and one I'm keen to benefit from using.

It does not have a name on the tester. I bought mine at my local farm store. My cousin just bought one at K-Mart. I am not sure how his works.

I just read an article that said 85% of hunters first food plot will fail. I just planted my first food plot two weeks ago. Lets hope I land in the 15%. Where can you send a soil sample into to find out all that information?

I bought a $20.00 ph tester, it seems to read 7.2-7.6 no matter where I test?? I need to have the soil tested as suggested here.

should you test your soil every year? Or does your soil not change year to year?
