Corn-tastic Lawn Program with Corn Gluten Meal
Our Corn-tastic program will make your lawn healthy, green and thick. A thick healthy lawn will reduce weed seed germination.
Our Corn-tastic program uses our Corn-tastic application. Our Corn-tastic application contains Corn gluten meal.
Corn gluten meal is made from one of nature's most wholesale grains-corn. Corn gluten meal is a by-product of the wet-milling process and is sold as a feed material for cattle, poultry and other livestock. It has been used in commercial fish food and is also a primary ingredient in many dog food products.
Our Corn-tastic application feeds with natural, slow-release Nitrogen - a valuable plant nutrient responsible for the vivid green colour of healthy plants. Natural Nitrogen becomes available to the lawn over a long period of time and will not burn the turf. Supplemental feeding may be needed to provide a complete range of nutrients for optimum growth. When you are on our Corn-tastic program, we will include the supplemental fertilizer at the proper time.
Corn gluten meal has been researched at the Iowa State University by Dr. Nick Christians. He has discovered that Corn gluten meal not only feeds the lawn but will also prevent crabgrass and certain other weeds from germinating.
Timing is important. We do our Corn-tastic application during late April to Mid-May and again in August. This is meant to be available on your lawn about 4-6 weeks before the main weed germinating seasons. The Corn-tastic application works best if watered in and then allowed to dry for 2-3 days. Our Corn-tastic application will keep working on your lawn for 4-6 weeks.
When used properly, the Corn-tastic application is completely safe for pets, humans and the environment and will not harm beneficial insects, soil organisms, pond or stream life.
Corn gluten meal only prevents weeds and has no effect on existing weeds. Other treatments may be needed to clean up existing weeds.
