Soil Requirements for peach, apple strawberry and grape.

Asked April 6, 2018, 1:58 PM EDT

I have my soil test back from the lab, but could only list one crop. I am going to plant peaches, apples, grapes and strawberries in the same general area. Could you give me the soil range by ppm for these crops, so that I might know what deficiencies I will need to work with? Thank you.

I am sorry this took so long. The soil requirements for those fruit crops are fairly similar.
Lime soils before planting to pH 6.5 to 6.8. This should take care of Calcium. Fertilizers containing Phosphorous (P) or Potassium (K) can be incorporated at rates recommended in Tables 1 and 2.
I have attached these tables as Picture files
Preplant soil tests above 75 lb Magnesium/acre are generally adequate.
Unless you are working with a sites where you suspect problems these recommendation should be good

Thank you so much for your response.
