To lower soil pH (meaning you want to make it more acidic), there are many materials available at garden centers. Products include elemental sulfur, aluminum sulfate or iron sulfate. The quantity to apply depends upon the current pH of your soil and what soil pH you desire based upon the needs of the crop you are planting.

For more information, do an internet search on lowering soil pH. You will find good information from many Midwestern universities (look for the university name and .edu).
