Uses/Tips

  • The standard application rate is 20 pounds of corn gluten per 1,000 (30x30 area roughly) square feet of lawn
  • Useful only as a pre-emergent herbicide for weed germination (crab grass especially)
  • Corn gluten only needs water just after application, but a dry period is then required in order for germinated weed seeds to have their root production inhibited. It can be quite difficult to get this application timing precisely correct
  • The first application of corn gluten will suppress only about 60 percent of the weed seeds, and a single application may help suppress weeds for four to six weeks.
  • The initial results may be disappointing but after several applications, corn gluten sometimes reaches 80 percent effectiveness at controlling crabgrass.
  • If you want to be perfect with your calculations obtain a soil thermometer that reaches 4 inches deep and apply once the temperature of the soil is 50 degrees
  • Corn gluten meal is commonly used as livestock feed containing about 65% crude protein. It can be a great source of protein, energy, and pigments for livestock, and is used in pet foods for digestibility.
  • From a pet perspective - Corn gluten meal is easy to digest, making its nutrients readily available to your pet. Corn gluten meal contains many essential amino acids, so when it is properly combined with other protein sources, it can contribute to highly digestible and nutritious diets. Corn is not a common cause of allergies, but potential.
