If our soil is too acidic as we continue to use organic amendments will it correct itself? We are using molasses, humate tea, seaweed. We also use a product that has microorganisms in it. We started the program last June and have put out 4 applications.

We live in Comanche Texas (heavy sand). We don't have the results of a soil sample yet but our neighbor puts lime down annually and we have not done anything but the organic treatment.

I cannot imagine that your soil is too acid, but quite the opposite. I would be adding compost for sure to be able to retain some of the moisture you put into it and for some nutritional value. Let us know your numbers when you get them back.
