How do i lower the ph of my soil for the long and short term.

13 years ago

My Ph is to High. I've uses a home test kit (high quality). I know many of you will want to suggest that I lab test it, but this test is usually pretty accurate, and other evidence of alkalinity is present. SO..what slow release amendment and short term treatment can I use in combination. I have some plants in the ground already. The soil is sandy loam. The Phosphorus is pretty high. The potassium is sufficient. I'm in Zone 10. Oh yes...the water is alkaline (hence the soil being alkaline) and I 'm sure that will be a factor in what and how much to amend. Hope that is specific enough. Thanks for you help.
