Re: Corn gluten meal

Johnson Cyndi D Civ AFFTC/ITSR wrote:
Any experiences on using corn gluten meal in vegetable gardens? How long
after germination of seeds - for example, beans - would you apply the meal?
No, but I plan to. Should be no trouble at all AFTER seed germination,
only before. It's a germination inhibitor, not a 'poison'. In fact,
it will act as a very low strength fertilizer if there's nothing
around to inhibit.
Slight modification, after reading bag: should be ok to apply when
sprouted seeds have true leaves, as opposed to the initial cotyledons.
Perhaps best to test on a spare seed or two ?
