Gypsum must be incorporated into the soil for the best and quickest results. I agree with the prior post that the addition of organic matter will be most effective in improving your soil but I would have it tested by your Cooperative Extension Service first. The results will give a very complete profile of your soil and give recommendations.

But you did hit on a very important observation, watering for short intervals with at least 1 hour between applications is the best method for deep watering regardless of soil type. Spread the word!!
