It must be applied before weed seeds germinate.Corn gluten is a dried protein that is separated from corn when starch is being manufactured for the food industry.

As a general rule, put it down when the Forsythia and early spring bulbs are in bloom. The timing of fall applications is not as important. The effectiveness of this product increases with its continued use. Weather also plays a role.
