Well I received my soil test results but they didn't give me any recommendations, will have to call the LSU Coop Agent for recommendations. In the meantime, here is what it looks like, any recommendations from the group? Thank you for your help!
These results are from LSU Ag Center of the SOIL. I used POOL strips to test the water myself so results may be incorrect. I will check to see if there is an expiration date on my Pool Test Strips when I get home. I will capture a water sample and get LSU to test it next week just to be sure. My county Agent called me today and he said the soil results are good for my area and for a fish pond, no lime needed, I just need to wait for Spring and warmer air/water temps and I can fertilize to get the water clarity and weeds in control. I am located in kinda South Central Louisana, just East of Baton Rouge. Soil is listed by LSU as Very fine sandy loam, upland area. We are about 51' above sea level, and the soil to me looked very much like clay in colors of gray and red, not real sandy looking. I have willow trees that grew up in pond before filling and are dead and decaying. I have a row of Oak trees that line the back side of the pond with leaves falling into the water, no pine trees. Thanks!!!
63.83 Phos is high. I can't see adding fertilizer in this situation-someone correct me if wrong. It does seem strange that Calcium shows over 1400 ppm and zilch on alkalinity and 25 on hardness, maybe I'm missing something.
I had my water tested at the Fish Farm on their tester and they came up with 7.0 ph and 18.5 on the alkalinity, so my pool water test kit is way off. I will get a sample over to LSU for full evaluation.
