The Q&A Archives: Corn Gluten Meal

Question: Why don't you recommend the best pre-emergent weed killer/fertilizer, corn gluten meal. It prevents germination, feeds the grass just what it needs, slowly, and won't harm a bug, pets, people or the environment. Perhaps HD should carry it, in large bags.

Answer: As a matter of fact, we do recommend corn gluten meal based products. There are a number of corn gluten based products on the market. Here's a short list, with manufacturer's in parethesis: (All Star Trading) Safe Lawn; (Collingwood Ethanol Value Products UCL) Amaizely Green; (Down To Earth Distributors) Corn Weed Blocker; (Fertrell Company) Weed Ban; (Gardens Alive!) WOW!; Manning Agricultural Center, Inc. (Preen Vegetable Garden Weed Preventer); (R-W Milling Company) Gard'n-Wise Organics; (Scotts Company) Scotts Turf Builder and Lawn Pro; (Soil Technologies Corp.) Dynaweed; Wilbur-Ellis Company) A-Maize-N; (Woodstream Corp.) CONCERN Weed Prevention Plus. I'm sure Home Depot carries Scott's and Concern and may have the others, as well.
