Now...if it needs lime it could take up to 6 month to incorporate into the soil.

Do not use CO-OP ( I think they used to use L&N lab or something like that) CO-OP is in the business to sell fertilizer.

Contact your County Extension office for UT Extension (looks like your in Wilson Co). Take mulitple samples from the same field and 3-6" deep and put it in a bucket. Go to the UT office and tell them what you want to plant and they will fill the form out for you or help you do so. It shouldnt cost more than $10 max (dont quote me on that). They will send it to Nashville and you will have an unbiased test done. Then you can ask the Extension Agent to help explain what the results say.

Don't take em mud,at least that's what they told me,and drying out wet dirt is not the way to go.Need to take sample when the field is relatively dry.Whaat they told me anyway.Dont remember why,Steven may know.
