I just received my soil analysis report from Texas A&M; would it be possible to receive some assistance on how to use this information to select an appropriate fertilizer?
I am planning on laying Bermuda sod on a yard that does not contain much vegetation growth. My soil sample had the following results.
N was 4ppm
P at 15ppm
K at 103ppm
The critical level for Phosphorus (P) is 50ppm and Potassium (K) is 175ppm. For my soil and location the recommendations were as follows:
O.7 lbs. N/1000sqft,
2.1 lbs P205/1000sqft and
1.2 lbs K20/1000sqft.
I can make sense of the recommendations but, I am not completely sure as to what type of granular fertilizer (fast or slow release) and the N-P-K ratio to select. It may be that there is no complete fertilizer N-P-K ratio commercially available that fits the recommendations I received. Would I need to purchase each ingredient separately? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
