I recommend Dolomitic lime, however, this will not sterilize. This will add calcium and magnesium, and help control the pH of the soil. There are many good mycorrhizae that will help convert the bacteria and urea into usable fertilizer for plants. Here is an article that will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/adding-lime-to-soil.htm
