So how can corn gluten help in the garden? Glad you asked…
Corn gluten can be used as a natural pre-emergent – to suppress weeds. Specifically, corn gluten inhibits the seed from germinating by drying it out as it cracks open to sprout. This action stops the development of roots – stopping the growth of the weed.
While its primary use is to stop weeds, corn gluten also has a high nitrogen count: 9-0-0. This nitrogen acts as a fertilizer and helps to green up established plants and lawns.
Here are some of the weeds that corn gluten effectively controls:
|• Barnyard grass |
• Bermuda grass
• Creeping bentgrass
• Curly Dock
|• Lambsquarter |
• Redroot Bigweed
• Smart weed
Continued use of corn gluten will actually diminish weed populations from year to year.
Safe, effective and easy to use…what more could you want from a natural herbicide?
