Salinity Management for Watermelon Cultivation

I have been growing watermelons in NE Karnes County, Texas (near Gillett). The soil is a red, sandy loam typical of Yegua formation. The irrigation water is high in Sodium and Bicarbonate. The estimated SAR is about 50 and Salinity Hazard is 1,100 mg/L. I am getting soil damage resulting in black soils. Irrigation is by LEPA. I have read that management of the hazards is by application gypsum and leaching. Can you suggest any more specifics on management of these hazards?
