Soil test results

After about three weeks of waiting we finally got the soil test results. The lab said that the soil sample we gave was wet and so they will keep it for several days before testing. If you are planning to do a soil test, dry the soil sample in advance so that you won’t have to wait as many days.

If you are in the Kakkanad area, your nearest soil test center is at Maradu. Actually Krishi bhavan told us that it is the only one around in the area.

The result looks like the land is fertile for vegetable farming. It shows that we are good on N (Nitrogen), but P & K (Phosphorous and Potassium) are on the higher side. I’m not sure if that’s good or bad. Lab recommended some fertilizers, but I’m going to get some expert help from organic farmers before I add anything to the soil.
