I've just finished my master's thesis at Oregon State University and one of
the experiments I ran was a greenhouse bioassay of different "organic"
soil amendments and their effect on the biomass accumulation of certain
grass and broadleaf weeds. Nick Christians at Iowa State University has
published extensively regarding the use of Hydrolyzed Corn Gluten as a
preemergent herbicide as well as nitrogen fertilizer. I am currently in
review with WeedTech for my article but expect it to come out sometime
after the new year. I have an abstract in the proceedings of the Western
Weed Science Society (vol.50) entitled "Effects of organic soil
amendments on broccoli, corn, and weed growth." One thing to be
careful of when using corn gluten is any possible crop growth effects it
might have. I believe it is marketed under the tradename "Amaizing
Lawn". Please feel free to contact me individually if you would like
further information or copies of the draft of the article.
