    I am in South East Wisconsin, near Milwaukee, where can I buy Corn Glutten Meal?

    What all weeds does it prevent from sprouting?
    Can I apply it now?

    Thanks

    You can try Gardens Alive web site I think that they have 20 and 40 pound bags.As for more info someone on here once posted a site for Iowa State
    I think they are the ones that did the original research on corn gluten.

    Thanks for the links

    The 1st Document titled "How to use Corn Gluten Meal" states
    "It is preemergence only, there is no postemergence effect on established weeds. In fact, it makes a great fertilizer for germinated weeds."

    Since my yard is full of weeds, I guess it is a bad idea to use it now?? What about after I have the yard sprayed with weed killer?

    I agree, get your property under control first and then move to other practices, just be careful spraying herbicides in the summer some of them will kill off most of the yard if the temps are too high, say over 80
