    Bill, sounds good on the liquid CGM. Will it sell as liters or 5 gallon jugs? That's why I didn't use CGM this year, blowing 2/3 of my N in spring when I need very little then.

    Well 1 US gallon = 3.78541178 liters, almost 4 liters

    5 gallons would be 18.9270589 liters or 18000.9 sq ft roughly

    Hopefully you'll have it in 55 gallon drums or bulk totes.

    Cinnamin bark works as a post-emergent crabgrass killer. Just dust it onto wet leaves. It does work but I haven't tried it on various lawns yet to see if it is safe for kbg,fescues, or the ryes.

    Shelf life should be well over a year, testing coming back in a couple weeks, we should be able to start shipping by the end of September
    we are working out the details on production as we speak, we are actually waiting for the corn crop to begin to come in, we should see the prices lower once they decide whether its a bumper crop year or not

    We will have a much better handle on pricing and delivery at the beginning of September

    Every time I attend a conference and I see someone speaking about corn gluten I always have to sit and listen, and the one thing I always notice is they always say similar things, and usually it's something like this...If you go with two applications at a high enough rate you can amazingly get 75-80% crabgrass control, do these guys realize a lawn with 20% crabgrass is more than likely the worst looking lawn in the neighborhood.

    I find it hard to believe that the organic guys still consider CORN products "green"; considering the fact that it is grown using synthetic urea shipped to us from the other side of the planet.
