Hi, I live in Bluffdale about a hundred yards from the Jordan River. Even with what was supposedly good topsoil, we have a hard time getting trees and other things to grow. Is it the clay? Is it the salt levels? How can I tell what nutrients are lacking in the soil? Thanks

I'll have to refer you to your local county Extension office at extension.usu.edu/saltlake. Their contact info is there.
