New property first soil test. Any ideas on ph lowering adding sulfur and gypsum and nitrogen is what my feed mill advisor said.

Ammonium sulfate if nitrogen is needed looks like that’s what has been advised...

Ive always used calcium nitrate for my nitrogen, looks to me like you could use some potassium also, I’d go with around 8-10 lbs of 0-0-50 per 1000 sq ft. Adjust your PH with Sulphur and retest. I bet you have a fantastic year.

Hard to get too much info from this test. It's more expensive, but next time opt for the full soil test that includes micro nutrients. Glenomkins is correct. Use AMS for your nitrogen source. The sulfur will help lower your pH. (at least temporarily)
