Award Fermos

A liquid iron for use in the autumn and early spring for rapid greening up and hardening of turf with added benefit of deterring moss

Iron sulphate has for many years been a useful tool for managing turf, it brings rapid colour, hardening turf and helping to lesson the impact of disease. High concentrations of iron sulphate can reduce the severity of moss in turf. With the loss of many of the available worm suppressants there is increased problems from worm casts on turf. The acidification of the upper root zone can reduce the activity of casting worms. FERMOS will lower surface pH and can be a useful part of an integrated pest management programme

FERMOS is a complex of iron sulphate with unique surfactants that allows the iron to enter the plants rapidly, but without blackening the turf. Where moss is present it will discolour over a period of a few days. If there is significant moss in the sward it is advisable to scarify or rake out the debris to allow the sward to knit back and fill the gaps. The application of an autumn and winter fertiliser will further enhance recovery of the grasses.
