Is there anyone out there who would be willing to help us evaluate our soil tests (about five different areas) and help us determine which soil ammendents would be the best for each area/purpose?

We have fruit orchard areas, blueberry areas, willow areas, raspberry areas, juneberry areas, strawberry areas on our property in Northern Idaho.

I am a bit overwhelmed with all the ammendments available and not sure how to best work with the soil test info. Thanks!

Who did the soil analysis for you? Usually they come with recommendations as part of the test. Did you not get these or do you just not understand what they are telling you?

Texas A&M did our soil tests.

Yes, they did give some recommendations, such as "add N, so many pounds per acre."

Now, we are trying to determine how this information relates to the large list of soil ammendments and available fertilizers.

Thanks!

A&M soil tests are fairly useless. Try the place listed below for better advice.
