Manufactured in Belgium by Viano, Mo Bacter Organic Lawn Fertiliser is an organic granular fertiliser which eliminates moss, feeds your grass, and improves the soil all in one. It releases its nutrients consistently and evenly over a twelve-week period and is an ideal moss killer. While feeding the turf with the nutrients it needs, the high levels of potassium are ingested by the moss. In turn this causes the moss to breakdown and be digested by the bacteria inoculated in the fertiliser. It will destroy the moss without leaving any black debris - leaving your lawn looking clean and healthy.
Furthermore, users will not have to scarify their grass after applying Mo Bacter and if the product is spread beyond the lawn, it will not burn plants. Also, unlike normal fertiliser, Mo Bacter Organic Fertiliser will not stain stonework, patios or paths.
Another advantage of Mo Bacter being an organo-mineral fertiliser is that it is harmless to animals and wildlife.
This unique product can also be used to remove roof moss.
For best results, it is recommended to apply Mo Bacter Organic Lawn Fertiliser & Moss Killer in the spring, or early summer to remove moss. To keep moss away in winter, apply the product in late summer or early autumn.
Viano MO Bacter is at its most effective when the SOIL temperature is 10°C or more.
Ingredients: Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, in a 5-5-20 (+3% MgO) analysis,. plus bacteria (bacillus spp.). A native bacterial species found naturally in soils; but when added to fertiliser, consumes dead material like thatch and moss.
