Thank you everybody for your input on lime.  I have talked to farmers 
near me and 40 miles away.  It looks like I may find what I need there.  
Will still need to study more on cation exchange, mineral balances, etc.

Someone mentioned Boron.  My soil test said I was deficient and my 
extension agent said I needed 3 pounds per acre.  I located a 50# bag of 
Solubor and used just a few pounds diluted in the sprayer on the 
4-wheeler.  I don't think I got toxicity, but was careful not to go over 
the recommendation.  I will probably recheck soil Boron this year.
