CGM not pelletized

Posted by smitty5952 6 PA (My Page) on

We had a discussion in another thread about CGM that I could get locally for $10.75 for 50 lbs. But the CGM is not pelletized and I would need a lime spreader to put it on my lawn. I have never seen or used CGM as I have just started organic lawn care. What consistency would non-pelletized CGM be? Would it be similar to SBM? Could I use it in a regular broadcast spreader? Are there different types of CGM? This price sounds awfully low to me. Usually around $1/lb around here. What is a lime spreader?

Smitty, FYI
Glenn @ Triple M says his CGM should spread in the same way as Soybean meal spreads. According to him it should spread with a normal spreader.
I'm curious also smitty, anyone ever have problems spreading non pelletized CGM with a broadcast spreader?

The CGM that I've used is nearly a powder...it's much more fine than SBM. Most broadcast spreaders can spread CGM. It's best to spread CGM when not windy.

The only type of CGM I purchase is a fine grind and I spread it with a Republic EZ Spreader rotary. You will need to experiment a bit till you get the proper setting to apply at a rate of 20lbs. per 1,000 sq. ft. If you are applying CGM now, its main purpose will be as a fertilizer.

smitty, where are you in PA. $10.75 is a great price for CGM for me, might be worth the drive.

I'm in South Jersey.

thanks!

RE: tooooo far :-(

Just saw your location in another thread. Harrisburg, right? A little too far, oh well.

blip, triple m is actually in Lebanon which is east of Harrisburg but still far from Jersey (90 minutes even from Phillipsburg, NJ). Link below. They suggest calling ahead to make sure they have it.

thanks gbig2, that's about 100 miles each way for me. :-( Any good fireworks places out that way, maybe I can combine 2 trips into one.

What's the price from Triple M?

RE: CGM not pelletized

I'm not sure about fireworks. The CGM is $10.75 plus tax for 50 lb bag.

RE: CGM not pelletized/fireworks

Actually there is a place between Lebanon and HBG that sells fireworks. Lotus fireworks
