You can, but I would recommend dolomitic lime, and wettable sulfur. This will have the same key elements, but will also help stabilize the soil, and give it calcium to go with the magnesium and sulfur. Magnesium and calcium effect each other, and it is necessary to have both to be able to take them up easier.
