quick one as ive finally got the go ahead to book an agronomist in for minerla soil tests - anything worth specifically asking for.?.. so far - Soil OM, PH , then P, K, Mg
being on limestone i wonder if Ca is also worth looking at? anything worth NOT getting?
Cation exchange ,ratios of micro nutrients, all could be good but for one excess or shortage and you lose balance, boron for one is overlooked in grassland, but is vital for calcium which is important for nitrogen and so on

I can find their standards for welfare & grassfed but not for their definition of ''Regen'' ?

I always question these things, why , I do my best but admit I have more to do and probably will always , but putting standards in place ,who decided where the baseline is, we aim to improve all we do little by little as we can afford it, but find regulation changes to often and is impatient, and easily ignores the progress we make, I'm afraid this will become another stick to beat ourselves with.

Check all your micronutrients as well, amazing how many will check NPK and are so limited by low sulphur. Or moly is out of whack!
I wouldnt go to mental in my experience fields that have been treated the same and are on the same soil type all come back very similar for micronutrient results
