  • Will Corn Gluten Work in Florida?

    Created by Keith on

    I have been trying to grow only an organic lawn here in South Florida. Weeds are continuing to be a problem. Will the corn gluten products work here as there really is no dormant period. Thanks.

    Keith –

    Corn gluten meal will keep many weed seeds from germinating and persists for about one month once applied. As long as the product is out there when the seeds are germinating, it should work. However, I recommend checking peak germination periods with your local extension — this will help you time applications and save you some money!

    Here’s a links to our Organic Lawn Care page.


    Hope it helps!
