Corn gluten meal (CGM), the protein by-product of corn milling, is a high (10%) nitrogen,natural compound with documented success in reducing seed germination of many species. A pre-emergent herbicide, CGM inhibits root development during seed germination, at least partially by desiccating the soil and reducing water uptake.
Usage of CGM as a pre-plant herbicide and as a weed inhibitor in existing landscapes has exploded, especially within the organic gardening and farming communities. Corn gluten meal can be incorporated into the soil as a pre-plant treatment or broadcast over existing landscapes. Current recommendations for use include turf grass landscapes and commercial as well as residential small fruits and vegetable production.
