Organic lawn care, soil tests, and soil improvements

As I continue to transition to a more organic approach, I am wondering if I will have to be EXTRA vigilant about testing my soil or if I could actually test LESS often.

Here is my thinking:

1) If you are using synthetic, you can be pretty sure that your grass is getting enough N,P,K.

2) If you are going organic, I am wondering if I will need tests to make sure that I get the right amount of the three. And if I were only putting something like soy bean meal down, won't I run into a major P and K deficit at some point?
