Corn Gluten – Weed Prevention

Nature’s Creation® PREVENT Corn Gluten Spreadable  is a non-selective, natural pre-emergent herbicide which feeds turfgrasses, flowers, vegetables, trees and shrubs. Its natural pre-emergent herbicidal properties prevent germination of broadleaf weeds, annual, and perennial grasses.

It works by inhibiting the feeder root development of germinating seeds. Because it will not kill existing plants which have already germinated, it may be safely used around transplants and plants with established root systems. It’s Nitrogen content will release slowly and feed your plants over a three to four month period without burning. 

Nature’s Creation® PREVENT Corn Gluten Spreadable does not contain any synthetic chemicals so your kids and pets can enjoy your lawn right after application
