Stop Weeds From Growing, Before They Start
The best way to control weeds in your lawn and garden is to prevent them from growing there in the first place. Weed Prevention Plus by Concern is an easy-to-use, effective pre-emergent herbicide, which means it kills weeds before they sprout. By applying to your lawn, garden and flowerbeds at the first signs of spring, you can tackle weeds underground - before they become a problem. Made of 100% corn gluten meal - a by-product of the cornstarch manufacturing process - Weed Prevention Plus is all natural, non-burning, odor-free and won’t harm surrounding lawn, plants or wildlife.
Naturally Promotes Green Up and Leaf Growth
Not only does corn gluten safely prevent young weeds from germinating, but it also promotes green up in established lawns and plants. Corn gluten is naturally high in nitrogen, which is an essential nutrient that makes your lawn greener, faster.
Sprinkle Anywhere Outdoors to Stop Weed Growth
Spread Weed Prevention Plus across your entire lawn in early spring to prevent weeds and to promote a fast green up. One 5 lb. bag will cover up to 250 sq. ft.
Use this natural herbicide freely around sprouted edible crops up until the day of harvest. Be sure to wait 6 weeks after application to plant new seeds.
Protect your precious flowers and bulbs from weed destruction with a nitrogen-rich formula that simultaneously nourishes established plants.
Walkways and Driveways
Sprinkle in between cracks of walkways, driveways and patios to prevent weeds from sprouting and destroying your foundation.
Part of A Well-Rounded Approach to Weed Control
Apply a Pre-Emergent Herbicide
Weed Prevention Plus is best used at the onset of spring, before weeds begin to grow (when crocuses begin to bloom or when forsythia blooms start to drop), and in late summer. Be sure to apply when the forecast shows no rain for a few days following application. Wait 6 weeks to plant any new grass, flowers, vegetables or ornamentals.
Spray Established Weeds
Because Weed Prevention Plus is so rich in Nitrogen, it won’t kill established weeds - it will only promote their growth. Instead, spray a contact herbicide for organic gardening, like Safer Brand Weed & Grass Killer, directly onto sprouted weeds.
Cover Dead Weeds with Mulch
Prevent re-growth of the weeds you killed by placing mulch on top of the sprayed area.

Concern Weed Prevention Plus for Gardens uses the power of Corn Gluten to prevent weeds from sprouting and robbing your plants of valuable nutrients.

Stop weeds, crabgrass, and dandelions before they start with Concern Weed Prevention Plus for Gardens harnesses the power of corn gluten meal--a natural germination inhibitor--to create a powerful weed prevention fertilizer. For use in flower gardens, vegetable gardens, and in landscaped areas around trees, shrubs and ornamentals, Weed Prevention Plus will not burn. And children and pets can safely play on the lawn immediately after application.
It kills only the root of sprouting seeds, and it can be used with confidence around established plants--including transplants, flower beds, shrubs and roses. When your flower or vegetable sprouts have true leaves, it is safe to apply Weed Prevention Plus even up until the day of harvest.
Concern Weed Prevention Plus is powered by corn gluten meal, which contains naturally occurring substances that inhibit the growth of the seed's tiny feeder roots. This causes the weed seedlings to die before their roots ever have a chance to become established. It's most effective when applied at a minimum of twice a year, in early spring and in the fall, to control germinating annual weeds. Unlike the leading competition’s synthetic products that can linger in your lawn for up to a year, allowing your children and pets to remain exposed to toxic chemicals, Concern Weed Prevention Plus is an all natural nutrient source that not only prevents weeds, but fertilizes your lawn by breaking down into the soil. The product performs best when an extended drying period follows the initial watering after application.

Corn GlutenIn 1986, an award-winning scientist at Iowa State University Research Foundation made an amazing discovery. He found that corn gluten meal, an animal feed by-product of the manufacture of corn starch, had the ability to inhibit the germination of grass and weed seeds in test plots. Through further research, he found that corn gluten meal contains naturally occurring substances that inhibit the growth of the seed's tiny feeder roots. This causes the weed seedlings to die before they ever have a chance to take hold.
Apply corn gluten in the early spring to your flower bed, vegetable garden or lawn, and you'll be greatly reduce the number of weeds you have to spray with herbicidal soap or pull throughout the growing season.
If you love feeding the birds, but hate the mess and all the weed and grass that grows from the seeds all over the ground, sprinkle an ample amount of corn gluten into the ground below the feeder to stop those seeds from germinating.
Directions for Use
Spread Concern Weed Prevention Plus evenly over lawn grass by hand or in a spreader. Avoid any bare spots where you are re-seeding. Sprinkle in cracks on sidewalks and driveways. Weed Prevention Plus works best if applied, watered in, and allowed to dry for a period of 2 to 3 days. If excessive rain occurs, reapplication may be necessary.
Apply 15 pounds per 1000 square feet to turf or garden soil. If you choose you can use twice the recommended rate for even better control with no fear of burning plants.
When to Apply
Your first lawn application should be in the early spring, 3 to 5 weeks before weeds begin to sprout. This is about the time the crocus and daffodils are blooming in your area. Re-apply in late summer/early fall when temperatures turn cooler to control late season weeds and help prevent spring weeds. Apply to gardens at any time.
Using Resealable Bag
Cut above resealable seal and pull apart to open. One 25lb bag can treat up to 1500 sq. ft. Reseal for storage.

March 23, 2016: After thought; This is a super good fertilizer. My yard looks healthier and much greener. It holds down weeds but it helps sprout snapdragons all over my yard, which is O.K. with me. I have never grown so many snapdragons in my life. My neighbors are admiring my yard for it. Also; I found that using a seasoning shaker with a big opening is much controllable to spread this product for smaller areas such as just around the plants. UPDATE: I now have another spreader from amazon: HandySpreader - Adjustable Hole Size - Handheld Spreader - That is a much larger capacity than a seasoning shaker. Should cover larger area yet better controlling for the spread.
I use Weed Prevention Plus for fertilizing purpose as well as weed prevention. When transplanting a young seedling I sprinkle this well around the root area and lightly rake it in the soil. The transplanted seedling seem to grow well.
Update again: September 7, 2016: It was no problem to clean up snapdragons. After I pulled them up they didn't come back. I am now faithfully using the Concern corn gluten when I transplant or plant new shrubs or flowers. The plants grow with vigor in such good health. They upped the price by 20% since my initial purchase. I hope they don't raise price much more.
UPDATE: They raised price again! That removed two stars.
