Calcium and Magnesium are sufficient. P and K are what you need, and always generally N. 15 pounds N,60 pounds P205, and 60-90 pounds K20 per acre. In terms of actual NPK that would be 15 pounds N, 26.4 pounds actual P, and 49.8- 74.7 pounds of actual K per acre, but you dont need to know that really. 600 pounds of 10-10-10 would do it and be high on the N side. 500 pounds of 6-12-12 would do it better without alot of excess N. 500 pounds of 12-12-12 would do it with excess N. There are alot of different formulation of fertilizers that wil get you what need, Co-Op should be able to take care of you but I really wouldnt depend on getting someone that will actually know this stuff there, I know you would be SOL in my hometown with that.

Do you know why K20 is listed 90-60 instead of 60-90?

Well,Most places in TN,first soil test on unlimed dirt is probably around 5 on the ph scale,which is poor dirt.7 is neutral.dont know what being a little over 7 means.Maybe SS will see this and answer.
