Corn Gluten on Bermuda??

shankins123(7aOKC)April 7, 2010

I know I'm a bit late for really good pre-emergent control (OKC Zone 7), but I would like to try using the CGM this year as a good start to an organic lawn program. BUT...I've read that it controls Bermuda? Is this true? That's what sort of grass I have (where I have grass, LOL). Please let me know - for reference sake, the dandelions have been blooming here for about a week.

Thank you!

At this late date, CGM will act as a good fertiliter as it contains 9% nitrogen. CGM will not effect any established lawn grass. As a preemergent it stops the germination of weed seeds. IF you were reseeding bermuda, CGM can't tell good seeds from bad.

Thanks...I think I've decided to go the soybean meal route, but I appreciate your answer!
