Have you had your soil tested? Many organic farmers think that there should
be about 10 times as much calcium as magnesium, and that excess magnesium
makes soil "hard". Foliar application seems to avoid this.

I plan to broadcast it like granular fertilizer.  The Epson Salt Council
http://www.epsomsaltcouncil.org/garden_usage_tips.htm recommends 1 cup per
100 square feet.  An acre has 48,560 square feet.  I'd guess that would be a
couple of 50 lb. bags per acre.
