Time to apply corn gluten in Spring

Asked March 27, 2019, 11:25 AM EDT

I was wondering if it is too early to apply corn gluten to my lawn? It says wait until crabgrass germinates in our area, but I'm not sure when that is.

Hello, Corn gluten is most effective when it attacks weeds just before germination. Generally weed germination and crabgrass in particular occurs in April. It is recommended to apply corn gluten in the first few weeks of the month when the forsythias begin to bloom. Gail Hermenau
