Seeking amendment suggestions

My second planting in rows that have been cover cropped and chised plowed. Then disked into and prepared into raised beds. I used azomite and TN brown sand in the planting. The trees were dusted w/EM. The first time planting got a food byproduct compost. I can no longer get that compost and weather is not conducive to getting my tractor in the orchard; considering a bagged material I can drag in, like Harmony or another NPK w/Calcium. I will finish with wood chips. Thoughts and or suggestions on the additional fertilizers?

Carter, what is your baseline here? Are you working with soil tests and the lab recommendations, or more of a shoot from the hip approach? Have you made the attempt to introduce mycorrhizae to the planting. I don't mean fungi in a can, rather innoculation from a local soil.
