Corn gluten meal tested on squash survival, yields

The following is a quote from the link below.

"According to the scientists, this research proved that CGM applications can be safely used if applied in a strip between vegetable rows. "The banded application�CGM placed between rows�resulted in significantly greater crop safety than the broadcast, or non-banded, applications", they explained. "Before this research, it was determined that CGM was phytotoxic when used as a preplant or a preplant-incorporated organic herbicide. It was also known that as a non-selective material, CGM would not only kill and inhibit weed growth, but also would negatively impact direct-seeded crop establishment, seedling vigor, and yields.""
