You might want to list protein content as well, if the product is not licensed by ISU. I think you want 60% protein content for weed suppression. Some you can get have 40% protein.

Natty you are correct the protein percentage has to 60% or better to be effective as a pre-M

I do belive Barry has liquid CGH (hydrolyslate) for $19.96 for 2000 sq ft treated. It is $39.95 for a gallon bottle that treats 4000 sq ft. represents 80 pounds of CGM

it is mix with water at 3:1 ratio, one quart treats 1000 sq ft

Thank you, good point.

Another thing to specify is powder or pellet.

So, for me $25 per 40# bag of 60% protein pellet CGM.

Price also depends on quantity & shipping.

Yes 1.5% N
many states have laws on the books that no more than 1 pound of N may be applied at one time, with CGM you are applying 2 pounds of N at 20 pounds per 1000 sq ft

with the Gluten-8 product you are applying roughly 1/3 of a pound of N per 1000
