Corn Gluten Meal and Centipede

I was speaking to my Lesco rep about CGM. He said he was concerned that the drying effect of the meal on the weeds would also affect the tender ends of stolens as the endevour to root. This therefore is concerning me. I know alot of post are from folks un northways, any one in the south use CGM for Centipede, Bermuda, or St. Augustine?
The major difference between successful people and failures is that successful people make it a habit of doing things that failures don't like to do. It is not that they like doing them any more than the failures, it is that they subordinate their feelings and emotions to the higher cause.

I haven't applied any but I would think that CGM wouldn't have much more effect on the root system than traditional preemergants. The guys up north apply seed pretty regularly from what it sounds like, and you don't hear of any issues about the CGM app. from the year before causing problems. I don't think that you would want to put it down the same time you sodded or seeded. Apply it in situations when you would apply a normal preemergant. You wouldn't spray a lawn w/ pre. before you sod or seed.
