Organic Lawn Fertiliser Eliminates Moss Without Raking

Posted on: March 31st, 2012 by Rob

DJ TURFCARE has launched a new 7.5 kilo bag for the award-winning MO Bacter – the organic lawn fertiliser that destroys moss by indirect action and eliminates debris by bacterial action, avoiding the need to rake.

It has been trialled on BBC TV’s Beechgrove Garden series in Scotland and has, up till now, only been available in 20 kilo bags.

The new size bag will treat up to 75 square metres, while 20 kilos will treat up to 200 square metres.

“MO Bacter has proved one of our most successful organic lawn products,” says managing director David Jenkins.

The BTME (BIGGA Turf Management Exhibition) award-winning product has received much praise from both professional and amateur gardeners alike.

MO Bacter is an organic slow-release granular fertiliser from Viano of Belgium, which eradicates moss, feeds grass for three months and improves the soil.

Moss dies as a result of excess potassium but leaves no black debris. The dead moss is then digested by the bacteria in MO Bacter (npk: 5-5-20). The product does not stain stonework, patios or paths.

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission has seen remarkable results in which two inches of moss at one cemetery in Oxfordshire was virtually eliminated in six months, with no need for scarifying to remove debris. And headstones were completely unmarked.

Renowned head groundsman Eddie Seaward tested MO Bacter and said he found it to be “very effective and very efficient.”

The product is harmless to animals and wildlife and will not damage border plants.

“MO Bacter is revolutionising the way moss is treated on grass near stonework,” says David Jenkins.

DJ Turfcare, based in Surrey, is sole UK distributor for Viano products.

*MO Bacter, which is granular, is available for both professional and domestic users.
