    Best price I have found in my area is $25 per 40# bag of NPK labeled CGM.

    (plz dont go OT, saying why NPK, other threads for that)

    List your best price here.

    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.

    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
