how it works

Weeds can ruin a garden in a variety of ways. Weeds can hog all of the nutrients given out by your compost and soil, causing your plants, fruits and veggies to suffer as a result. Weeds can also crowd out your plants and confine them to a space that will not allow them to grow and flourish. Concern Weed Prevention Plus for gardens uses the power of corn gluten to prevent weeds from sprouting and robbing your plants of valuable nutrients. Stop weeds and dandelions before they start with this natural product. The Concern Weed Prevention Plus harnesses the power of corn gluten meal (100%), creating a powerful weed prevention fertilizer. Up to 90% effective weed control in the first year on dandelions and crabgrass. For use in flower gardens, vegetable gardens and in landscaped areas around trees, shrubs and ornamentals. Will not burn. Concern Weed Prevention Plus is composed of 100% granulated corn gluten meal. Children and pets can play on the lawn immediately after application since Concern weed prevention plus kills only the root of sprouting seeds, it can be used with confidence around established plants, including transplants, flower beds, shrubs and roses. When your flower or vegetable sprouts have true leaves, it is safe to apply Weed Prevention Plus even up until the day of harvest.

  • Prepare garden bed by turning under or pulling established leaves, then sprinkle around bedding plants, flowers or shrubs
  • Lawn spread weed prevention plus evenly over lawn grass by hand or in a spreader
  • Apply 5 lbs. per 250 sq. ft (25 ft. x 10 ft.) to turf or garden soil, if you choose you can use twice the recommended rate for even better control with no fear of burning your plants
  • Your first lawn application should be in the early spring, 3-5 weeks before weeds begin to sprout
  • 5.4 lb. bag
  • Rake lightly into soil, weed prevention plus works best if applied, watered in, and allowed to dry for 2-3 days

I have seen a few posts about this product being safe for animals and other wildlife. My concern is that this isn't organic. Being made from corn gluten, I am wondering if the corn used is GMO-free. If it's not organic corn, then it is actually harmful to bees, butterflies, etc. Would need further info before I purchase this.

Answer: 
Corn gluten is is a partial product of the seed. Unlike the growing plant, whether or not it is GMO is not very important. As the plant is not present, no bees and butterflies will be consuming it, and it is not inherently harmful in this form to any of them. If you wish to make a political statement by not purchasing anything not produced GMO free, then you obviously have no such certainty, here. If Read More

If this is about whether or not you are truly harming the ecosystem by YOUR use of this, I cannot see how that could happen. Of course, the dandelions won't like it. Read Less

Answer: 
There is no need to till this product into the soil. We recommend applying directly on the surface of the soil. This product should be applied two weeks prior to planting seeds, or after new seedlings have germinated. Applying at the same time that seeds are planted will result in no seed growth.

5 lb. Weed Prevention Plus Bag is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Greenest grass on the block Received my Corn Meal Gluten just in time for the Autumn feeding. My lawn looks green like Summer, and I hope the weeds are having difficulty digesting this little October surprise. More to come in the Spring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product This product seems to work well I followed the instructions and applied product three weeks ago and have not seen any new growth
Date published: 2016-09-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Works I've used this product and the weeds have not returned
Date published: 2016-10-18
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This product works very well as a crabgrass preventer. This product was applied to the yard which has about 60% established grass and 40% crabgrass. The prevent has kept the crabgrass from growing but not so well against other weeds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is a PRE-EMERGENT, not a weed killer!!! Think before you write a review. For those of you complaining that it did nothing for your dandelions and such, it won't. It only prevents *NEW* weeds from germinating. If you don't understand what that means; it kills the BABY WEEDS after they start to sprout. I've used it and it does what they claim. I will certainly use it again. Granted, it is not and strong and effective as the commercial pre-emergent that a professional landscaper might use, but it is much safer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Did the job Did the job, easy to use. Must measure coverage area for best results
Date published: 2016-07-13
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This does supply nitrogen The "description" part of the product page states "Fertilizer; No", which is not true. In fact it's a large part of why I decided to buy this, but of course mainly for the pre- emergent aspect. The info on (I think!) IOWA State Ag Dept said that the bonus of their discovery was that the corn gluten meal is a high nitrogen fertilizer. So, it does both: fertilizes, and it control the weeds by stopping the seeds from sprouting

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worth a Try - Grabgrass Beware This product comes in granular form and is very easy to spread by hand or with broadcast type fertilizer spreader. Must be applied very early in Spring (in Bufffalo, NY area) before crabgrass has a chance to show up. First time using this product so not sure how effective it will be once warmer summer "weed" weather gets here to WNY. For now, it looks like it is doing a fairly good job at holding down crabgrass growth compared to last season at this time.
