Hi Sheila, and welcome to the Dirt Doctor forums!

I'm not sure which post you read, but generally the corn meal is only affected by other fungicides. It will still work as a fertilizer, but will not give you the anti-fungal effect if chemical fungicides preceded the corn meal. The materials you used should have no effect on corn meal.

Ironate? Do you mean Ironite? If you need iron in your soil, the best thing I've found is called greensand. The ingredient is glauconite. You should be able to find it on the East Coast. Ironite has other issues, besides the fast that it doesn't always work.

You didn't really say what your lawn problems were, but as the leaves fall, I would not let them sit on top. I would mulch them in on a weekly basis.

Here is a further explanation of why you should not use ironite.

I ran across this Q&A from Howard here on the web site concerning Copperas.

Quote:
Q: Someone gave me Hi-Yield Copperas, is it a good or bad product? thanks, E.A.

A: I do not recommend iron products that are a rusty brown color. Those are usually made from scrap metal or other industrial wastes and contain contaminants like heavy metals. The best iron supplements are Texas greensand and seaweed products that contain liquid iron. These products are buffered to work gently effectively and not stain as the ferrous sulfate materials do.
