SUMMARY OF SOIL TEST RESULTS
(July 1, 1955 June 30, 19$6)

Herman L. Breland
Asst. Soils Chemist



The Department of Soils has been testing soils, as a free service,
for residents of the state for many years. The requests for this service
have increased tremendously during the last four or five years due, at
least partly, to the increased use of fertilizer and the cost-price squeeze.
This increased interest in soil testing naturally brought in more samples
from all areas of the state. This information has been summarized so that
a clearer picture of the overall situation can be obtained. The pH and
fertility levels were determined for the major crops and also the major
soil areas of the state. This data can be used for determining such things
as the soil area most of the samples are received from, pH levels for each
county, and comparison of fertility levels of various crops.

The Soil Testing Laboratory received and analyzed 12,006 samples
during the fiscal year July 1, 1955 through June 30, 1956. This, of
course, is an average of 1,000 samples per month. A rather large number
of these samples were for personnel working on various projects in the
Agricultural Experiment Stations. There were also many samples received
that had very little or no information about them. This left a total of
5,876 samples, or 48.9 percent, that could be used in this study.


The number of samples received and the number
by months are given in the following table:

The table shows that samples were received from all but five of the
67 counties. The five counties not sending samples in for analysis were
Charlotte, Glades, Martin, Okeechobee and Suwannee.

When all the pH values were grouped into the five pH ranges, regard-
less of crop or soil area, the following distribution was found:

The pH and nutrient levels as related to crops and soil areas are
given in the following tables. The data from all the samples were grouped
according to (1) crops being grown and (2) the general soil areas of the
state. The pH and nutrient levels, as found by soil tests, are then given
for each of the above categories.
