Synergy with Corn Gluten Meal is derived from corn gluten meal, which is a pre-emergent 100% organic weed control and fertilizer approved for use in lawns. Corn gluten meal is both an organic fertilizer and an pre-emergent organic weed control. Prior to the germination of weeds, when corn gluten meal is applied at 20 pounds per thousand square feet it will prevent new weed seeds from germinating properly. Synergy controls weed seeds and after the first application it is common to see around a 60% reduction in weeds in a lawn. If Synergy is applied both spring and fall for three or more consecutive years it is common to see up to a 95% reduction of weeds in a lawn.
Synergy with corn gluten meal is one of the best organic fertilizers as it produces a long lasting green-up of grass. Synergy is a natural weed control made from corn and does not contain any chemicals. Synergy is a great option for those looking for a natural way to prevent weed seeds from germinating properly in your Boulder lawn.
We recommend spring applications of Synergy in March or early April and a fall application is also recommended in late September or October.
Lawns in the Boulder and Fort Collins area respond extremely well to Synergy applications because all the nitrogen is 100% organic and naturally slow release. This means
the nitrogen in this organic fertilizer will only become available to the grass after the microbes in the soil decompose the corn gluten meal. This means the corn gluten meal will slowly feed the lawn and it is impossible to burn a lawn using a 100% slow release organic fertilizer.
Since organic fertilizers are naturally slow release, the end result is a
long lasting beautiful deep-dark green colored lawn.

Note: Synergy with corn gluten meal for lawns is most effective as a pre-emergent organic weed control. If corn gluten meal is used on a regular basis it will build the soil and prevent weed seeds from germinating properly.
The more consecutive years Synergy is applied to a lawn the more effectively it will prevent weeds from growing. Customers in the Boulder and Fort
Collins areas that have been using Synergy with corn gluten meal on their lawns for 3 or more consecutive
years have very few weeds in their lawn.
The Boulder lawn care company Organo-Lawn has been using the propriatary organic weed control Synergy since 1997.
Corn gluten meal doesn't really kill weeds, but it will prevent weed seeds from germinating properly. Shortly after weeds germinate in a lawn, the young weeds send out secondary feeder roots that are important for drawing vital nutrients from the soil. The corn gluten meal, which is a by-product of corn syrup production, damages the feeder roots of many young plants. The end result is that many of the weeds will germinate, but because the corn gluten meal damages the weed's secondary feeder root, they will not develop into an adult weed. Corn gluten meal has been proven to control many types of weeds including: dandelions, crabgrass, thistle, clover, plantain, lamb's ears, etc.
Synergy, an all organic pre-emergent weed control, is registered by the Colorado Department of Agriculture, and is recommended for weed control for lawns in the Boulder and Fort Collins area.
