Welcome to the latest soil test report for Oregon Super Soil, your trusted supplier of live, organic, nutrient-rich soil for organic growing of indoor or outdoor plants. We’re excited to share the results of our most recent batch, blended on April 27 and tested on May 18.

The Power of Guano

Guano, or bat droppings, is a rich source of nutrients for plants. It’s packed with nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium – the three primary nutrients that plants need to thrive. In our new batch of Oregon Super Soil, we’ve included guano to boost the soil’s nutrient content and provide your plants with the nourishment they need to grow strong and healthy.

Soil Test Results

Let’s dive into the results of our soil test. We’ve compared the results with the target ranges for optimal plant growth:

  • Soil pH: The soil pH is 6.4, which is within the ideal range of 6.2 to 6.8. This slightly acidic environment is perfect for most plants, helping them absorb essential nutrients effectively.
  • Organic Matter: The soil contains a whopping 41.80% organic matter, significantly higher than the target range of 5% to 6.9%. This high organic matter content improves soil structure, promotes water retention, and enhances nutrient availability.
  • Capacity to Retain Nutrients: The soil’s capacity to retain nutrients is 22.9, above the target range of 11 to 16. This high cation exchange capacity (CEC) means the soil can hold and supply nutrients to plants effectively.
  • Nutrient Content: The soil is rich in essential nutrients such as phosphorus, potassium, calcium, magnesium, sulfur, zinc, manganese, iron, copper, and boron.
