Prepare soil for planting

Prepare soil for planting by incorporating compost and a complete fertilizer high in phosphorus. Apply chemical fertilizers just before planting. If manures are used, apply them two weeks before planting and irrigate to leach salts from the surface soil. Apply no more than 20 lbs. of poultry manure or 50 lbs. of steer manure per 100 square feet.
