ORGANIC PRE-EMERGENT

CORN GLUTEN MEAL ( 9-0-0 )          Corn gluten meal is a non-toxic alternative to traditional, chemical-based weed-and-feed products. It’s great for gardens, lawns, paths, and driveways.


 As the only organic pre-emergent herbicide available, corn gluten meal also makes an excellent all-nitrogen Fertilizer.

 

The product works by inhibiting root formation of seeds at the time of germination. The protein in corn gluten kills the seed by drying out a seed as soon as it cracks open to sprout. Weeds germinate and form a shoot, but no root, which prevents growth.


Existing plants — including weeds — are not effected. Instead they enjoy the boost they get from the nitrogen.


Timing and coverage are crucial.....
