Manure-Lime-BFB-Gypsum-Green manure

This November I will have been working my plot for 4 years and I have added the following in different areas and over different periods

My question is in general terms when does the value or effect of these different additions to the soil finish

Blood Bone Fish 




Green manure...Phaecelia

I am planning out the 3 parts of the plot to enable sensible rotation and obviously some of the plants I want to grow wil / wont benefit from the addition of the above

? Does anyone have any experience / advice on what needs to be replenished etc
