A safe, non-toxic alternative for lawns. Corn Gluten Meal, a by-product of corn starch production, is a livestock and wild bird feed. Professional growers and landscapers swear by it as an integral ingredient in a well-rounded and natural lawn care approach.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Apply 20-40 lbs per 1,000 square feet in early spring, about the time the crocus and daffodils are blooming. Re-apply in late summer when temperatures turn cooler.
NOTE: We sell corn gluten as a fast release nitrogen fertilizer for turf (9%N). However, it has been shown by researchers at Iowa State University to inhibit seed germination and works as a pre-emergence herbicide. Do NOT direct seed in treated areas for several months after application. No danger exists to established plants.
