Two materials commonly used for lowering soil pH are aluminum sulfate and sulfur
Be extremely careful not to over-apply .

Pounds of Aluminum Sulfate to Lower the Soil pH:  0.6 pounds
Pounds of Sulfur to Lower the Soil pH                  :  0.1 pounds

By this you should end up in a PH value of 5.5-5.7 in your soil PH.

But do consult with other fellow members before trying them.

I am an illiterate in this subject, and am taking this opportunity to learn the good methods. pls bear with me for some questions ( some times it may seems to be silly Questions).

After applying the above said material, how long will it take to 5.5-5.7  ph level?  and also pls tell me the dosage qty per acre

When I am taking to the Agri dept people, they had said that, “use 150kg gypsum / Acre” Is it Correct?
