MO Bacter is an Organic-based slow-release granular fertiliser which will feed your lawn for 100 days, destroys moss without turning it black and removes the need of raking out the dead moss.
MO Bacter is not a moss killer in the sense that it does not contain any chemicals. It destroys moss by secondary action. That is the moss over feeds on the potash in the fertiliser and because it has a low tolerance of salts it dies. When it dies it will not go black but turns a gentle brown which quickly disappears.
MO Bacter contains a very safe bacteria called Bacillus sp. which is found normally in the soil. This Bacillus eats dead organic matter and converts it into plant food. Some of the dead moss will be removed during normal mowing, the rest will fall back into the thatch layer where it is consumed by the Bacillus removing the need for raking out.
Most other moss killers rely on sulphate of iron to control moss. Sulphate of iron is a contact killer and does not destroy the entire plant where as MO Bacter destroys the moss plant completely.
MO Bacter stimulates fresh grass growth which will help to fill in the areas where moss has been removed.
As MO Bacter contains no harmful chemicals you can over seed about 4 weeks after applying it to fill in any bare patches. Remember to scratch up the soil before seeding and put a thin layer of soil over the top of the seed to help retain moisture. Try to keep birds away particularly in the Spring when they are busy feeding their young.
MO Bacter is Organic and if applied correctly it will not scorch the lawn even if it does not rain after application. Having said this MO Bacter does require wetting before it becomes active.
MO Bacter is best applied after the lawn has been mown short so that the fertiliser gets into the bottom of the grass.It should then be left for 7 to 10 days before mowing again. This allows the fertiliser to dissolve and work its way into the bottom of the turf where it cannot be picked up by the mower .
Because MO Bacter is Organic it is perfectly safe to put the grass clippings on the compost heap after mowing.
As we have already said almost all other moss killers use sulphate of iron in order to kill the moss. It is this which causes the moss to go black but it also stains stonework,paths,patios and garden furniture. As there is no sulphate of iron in MO Bacter any possibility of staining is removed.
MO Bacter is an excellent fertiliser containing no pesticides so any treatment which spreads onto flowerbeds will not harm the plants but feed them instead.
Because MO Bacter is Organic it is safe for children and pets although like all fertilisers pets should not eat it.
A spreading rate of 100 grams per sq.m. or slightly more should be used.
MO Bacter is in harmony with nature and we are confident that it will produce a lawn which is ideal for playing on, partying on, looking at or just lazing on, either way we feel sure that it will give your customers the satisfaction they deserve.
