MO Bacter is a slow release organo-mineral fertiliser from Viano of Belgium which releases its nutrients evenly over a twelve week period. It feeds the lawn whilst working against moss. The high levels of potassium are ingested by the moss which causes the moss plant to breakdown and be digested by bacteria inoculated in the fertiliser.
*Packaging may vary. 10 kg or 20 kg options available, please select from the dropdown menu.
MO Bacter is a slow release organo-mineral fertiliser from Viano of Belgium which releases its nutrients evenly over a twelve week period.The low scorch formulation steadily feeds the lawn whilst naturally working against moss. The high levels of potassium are ingested by the moss which causes the moss plant to shut down. It is then decomposed over time by specifically chosen bacteria which have been formulated within the fertiliser.
Lawns are then left free of any debris with no need to scarify. MO Bacter is an organo-mineral fertiliser which is, 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.
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.
