Score! Now I need a little advice

rcnaylor(z7 Tex)February 24, 2008

Ran into a close out sale and picked up 10 40 lb bags of Corn Gluten Meal for three bucks a bag.

I've never been able to afford the stuff as fertilizer before. So, how much should I apply and when should I apply the first application. I'm in zone 6b/7.

I put out some urea about Thanksgiving. I would normally put out about 20lbs of cottonseed meal around May 1, but, with the CGM to fight weeds, when should I put it out? How much per thousand sq feet?

\ Thanks for any experience and advice.

To use CGM as a pre-emergent, in your area I'd put it down between now and March 15 at 20 lbs per 1000 sq ft. Boy you got a heck of a deal!
