Let me understand this. Someone posts their lousy analysis in this thread, I make comments and you are picking the options? LMAO.

And then if they screw up, you will be there to help? Maybe if you guys all got together, you could run those K meters in series and get a super K meter...

I know this is off topic, sorry.

Anybody know a concentrate artist that is good, and doesn't already have a legal business? Please let me know in PM's. SlowN?

Carry on please.

This is why it is so critical to have a real set of numbers, make a real plan, work the plan and then check your analysis from time to time to see if you are getting where you want to go.
In regards to light weight mixes...I've been submitting my soil samples without any aeration added. The results show cec values in the mid 30's. If I add aeration components after testing what effects does that have to cec,overall nutrient availability,ph etc.? Currently am using perlite only at 33%.

Am I correct in not testing an inert component (perlite)in the initial mix?

Jack- I sift my samples and weigh them as is for ammendments

So yes I am a big boy and even when people tell me exactly how to do it, i find a simpler way. Sometimes I have to learn the hard way as I am this morning after trying to drink with my mom last night. Seen alot of people fail and I've kept up many times...there are no winners.

I'm gonna add alot of amendments, till deep as I can and we will see the results. I'm pretty sure I will be just fine and some people will learn something. I will for sure I just hope it's not a hard lesson, i hate those ones. Either way I'm not gonna let the door hit me on my way out. This CO gig is coming to an end. Im gonna get what i can while the getting is good.

Edit The best part is my employee is headed to work with the excavation crew. I'll be left with my wife, buddy's wife and father in law to clear the trees on the hemp plot. My father in law is older then the land were clearing, he's getting dimetia and I may have to put him down lmao

Had a request on how I calculate base saturations using the M3 and AA@8.2 (which was discussed before, but what the heck).

It is real simple.

I only utilize the Ca number from the AA@8.2 which is the only element which will set up for the most part in carbonate form. K, Mg and Na from M3 are utilized along with the Ca from AA@8.2

I don't use H estimates, instead I lime to fix the pH if necessary and aim at 80 to 87% Ca depending on whether the soil is sandy or heavy....
