Mo Bacter is an organic fertiliser from Viano of Belgium which releases its nutrients evenly over a twelve week period. Feeds the lawn whilst working against moss. The high levels of pottasium are ingested by the moss which causes the moss plant to breakdown and be digested by bacteria innoculated in the fertiliser.
Lawns are left free of any debris with no need to scarify. It's completely organic, harmless to animals and wildlife, and doesn't damage border plants.
MO Bacter is best used in the spring, or early summer, to eliminate moss and late summer or early autumn to stifle its winter development. It is at its most effective when the ground temperature is 10°C or more.
Active Ingredients: Nitrogen, phosphate and potash 5-5-20 plus a bacteria (bacillus sp) which is found naturally in soil; but when added to fertiliser, consumes dead material like thatch and moss.

Feed backs good but only started using product which will take 2 weeks before results appear
On 21-Jul-2014 the supplier responded: Thank you for the feedback, the price differential on three bags was not as you state, but £14.10 once delivery and VAT was applied at both checkouts.
We offer a price monitor pledge on all of our products and have subsequently reviewed our pricing on MO Bacter to compete with all other internet distributors of this product. Again, we hope you found the product performed to your expectations and appreciate you making us aware of the pricing issue, which you will see we have addressed.
Living in central Scotland I waited until my soil temperature was as recommended then spread with a manual spreader. It rained the next day snd by the time I cut it 2 weeks later there was a noticable difference. I took pictures before applying and the difference is amazing. I was worried I may have bald patches to reseed but this hasn't happened. My neighbours have also mentioned the difference. I will reapply in the autumn as our area has a very substancial moss problem and this should mean that next spring the moss isn't an issue for me.
I used it on a Friday and the moss has been killed off. Other weeds are slowly dying. Would like to know if you have anything to kill clover. Very pleased with my back lawn as it is now very lush and green after the rain. My front lawn that had the moss and has clover, is green where there is grass. A good product.
It has been 15 days since I used this product but. It has not done what it said on the packet. The grass has got a little greener but the moss is still there. I believe that the moss was supposed to grow in height so that the mower would cut it out but this has not happened. I will now have to spend more money on the traditional weed, feed and moss killer.
On 17-Apr-2014 the supplier responded: Thank you for the feedback, it is very rare for MO Bacter not to achieve expected results. Our Technical Manager will be in contact with you to discuss the method of application, conditions and rate applied.

I have not used the recent purchase as yet (no rain as yet!) but have used it before and it is excellent. I have purchased from another company based in Dunsfold, Surrey and it is really good stuff. Does not leave the lawn looking black.

On 04-Oct-2013 the customer
changed their rating and
added: Service rating : The products we have bought have been organic & truly amazing: everyone has noticed a huge change in our quite large lawn. Moss & weeds have been controlled (even the ground elder has reduced in size & scope) & although moss regrows at the end of the season, due to the extreme shade of the high holly hedge, it soon responds in the spring. Even regular builders, when working on our roof, have compared our lawn to Wembley Stadium.
Moreover, despite being irregular customers, Pitchare is speedy in delivery & very helpful in our product selection. Product : Mo Bacter is especially brilliant in removing weeds/moss & vastly improves the health of our grass throughout the growing season: even this year when we had a problem connected with drought & have always had issues with large beech tree roots. We wouldn't be without it, particularly as we encourage birds & wildlife.
Another product we occasionally use in conjunction with this is Scotts Sportsmaster.
