Previous work with corn gluten meal indicates that it can inhibit the germination of a variety of seeds without affecting plants with an established root system. The farmer will test the corn gluten meal in his organic vineyard for its weed control properties, and also monitor the effect on vines, berry weight, and the survival and growth of new vines as compared to controls.
