UCD is on my list to ask; it's just a matter of finding the right people
there to talk to. Thanks!

Steven, you live in Sacremento right next to UC Davis, one of the top ag
schools in the country. That's where I think you should go before spending
a fortune on soil tests. The soil in your area often goes over the top
alkaline as I recall from long ago reading but I guess that answer is too
obvious, you said you tested pH. But I recall something about salt build-up
in the interior valleys there- not enough rain- and even the ground water is
often contaminated with excess salt.
I bet a phone call to UC Davis to one of their soil gurus could straighten
you out quick. The rest of us merely speculate.
