Being a non-selective pre-emergent herbicide means that it keeps ALL seeds from germinating. This means that it needs to be applied to lawns that are already esablished, and care needs to be taken to not apply it where seeds have been planted which you want to grow.
As a fertilizer, corn meal gluten is rated at N-P-K ratio of 9-1-0, or 10% nitrogen by weight.
It should be applied at a rate of 20-40 lbs per 1,000 ft-sq. Rates above 80 lbs per ft-square will interfere with the growth of healty plants and grass, so don't go above 40. I used 20 and had good results.
Corn meal gluten is not 100% effective either. On first application, it is around 60% effective, but that goes up to a maximum of about 80% after multiple applications, about 4-6 weeks apart.
Corn meal gluten needs to be watered lightly after use and allowed to dry after, so don't apply it if rain is forecast before the lawn can dry.
It must also be said that if you already see weeds growing in your lawn, it is too late for this product, at least as a weed killer. It will still prevent more weeds from germinating, and it will fertilize the soil, as well as helping to make future applications more effective.
So, you will still see some weeds with this product, but because you are not damaging the soil, and are making your lawn healthier, there will be fewer weeds just due to the thicker grass.Read more ›
It's important for buyers to understand how and why this product works. It targets emerging seedlings killing off the delicate root hairs that a young plant forms. It is not a contact killer on established weeds! If you do not apply this during times when weeds are germinating then it won't be effective. The good news is that the same time common spring and fall weeds are germinating is the same time it is best to apply fertilizer which this product doubles as. Do a little research on proper application of this product before purchase and you will be satisfied; I promise.
