    “Interpreting Soil Test Results is a handy compendium. Soil scientists who write for clients and the clients who read their reports, both in Australia and elsewhere, should find this book valuable.” (European Journal of Soil Science) About the Author Pam Hazelton has worked as a soil . The INTERPRETATION section focuses on four of the important Soil Test Results (Phosphorus, Potassium, pH, and Soluble Salts) and gives an explanation of them in graphical format. A short explanation of how to read the graphs is 2/3 of the way down the left-hand column of the Explanation of Soil Test Report page.

Interpreting Your Soil Test Results. The primary goal of soil testing is to inform efficient and effective resource management. Soil testing is the most accurate way to determine lime and nutrient needs. Soil testing is also useful for identifying contaminated sites (e.g., elevated levels of lead).

Soil Analysis: An Interpretation Manual is a practical guide to soil tests. It considers what soil tests are, when they can be used reliably and consistently, and discusses what limits their application. It is the first nationally accepted publication that is appropriate for Australian soils and conditions.
