I recently had my soil tested and the results concluded that i have extremely high levels of phosphorus, but only average levels of calcium. Just wondering how this would affect my Ginseng root growing rates. thanks for the help
If your PPA is 3,000 or above on Calcium then I would entertain planting some seed on your property if I were you. I am sure you are aware of the other factors such as tree Canopy, Slope, Underbrush, theft, pest, etc that need to be considered.
I am pretty sure that high Phosphorous levels promotes rapid and strong growth in new transplants and young plants! They should develop more root mass and root fibers as well as heavier stalks and bigger tops on the plants. I believe that this would cause the roots to have the looks and appearance of cultivated Ginseng. I do not know what significance that average levels of Calcium would play with high levels of Phosphorous. I wonder if the high levels of Phosphorous are due to runoff from agricultural crop fields?
