Iron sulphate. Spring fertilizer

Inorganic chemical compound, iron salt and sulfuric acid.
The hydrated iron (II) sulphate FeSO4 · 7H2O, formerly known as iron vitriol / iron or iron coffer, is a light green crystalline substance that melts at 64 ° C, transformed at 90 ° C into the monohydrate FeSO4 · H2O, which at 327 ° C releases water and passes to anhydrous iron sulphate.

Species: pure technical

Specification
Name: Iron sulphate (II)
Synonyms: iron (II) sulphate, iron (II) sulfate, ferrous sulfate, Iron (II) sulfate (former)
Species: Clean technical
Cleanliness: Clean
Chemical formula: FeSO4

Characteristic
Iron II sulfate heptahydrate (or ferrous sulphate) FeSO4 · 7H2O, causes mosses to die down. It is easy to recognize it in a blue-green color. It is a fertilizer that reduces soil pH, it is best used during intensive grass growth. Treatments need to be repeated every few weeks.

Application in combating moss
Iron (II) sulphate has a strong drying effect, which is disastrous for mosses. It is characterized by contact activity and causes browning and then blackening of mosses.
Iron sulphate eliminates moss from lawns and prevents it from occurring. It stimulates the immune system of plants, which prevents grass diseases. Used in the treatment of iron chlorosis, leaf yellowing due to iron deficiency.
The basis for proper control is the exact coverage of the mosses with the preparation and hence the formulations of this compound in the liquid form show greater efficiency. An extremely valuable advantage of iron sulphate is the activity already at the temperature of zero degrees C. This allows the application of the preparation in early spring, during the intensive development of mosses, even before the date of application of spring fertilization.
The ferrous sulphate has the form of a green-blue powder and nodules well soluble in water. If the concentration is too high, the grass becomes black and the effect disappears after a few days. Do not use if frost may occur, but it can be used already at 0 degrees Celsius. If necessary, the treatment can be repeated after about 3-4 weeks.
After 2-3 days from the use of iron sulphate, the change in color of moss to black will be a sign of effective elimination. Dead moss should be removed with garden rake, moss should not be composted.
Iron sulphate should only be used in areas covered with grass, where it is perfectly absorbed. Do not use on building surfaces such as roofs, sidewalks, terraces, concrete, concrete blocks, walls, garden figures etc. as iron sulphate leaves a dark (black or brown) coating difficult to remove (it can be removed with 5% oxalic acid solution) .
After application, avoid contact with the lawn for a period of about 7 days due to the risk of irritation or staining of other surfaces.
Caking the product is a completely normal process, reversible and does not reduce the properties of the substance.


Dosage
A 3% solution of iron sulphate in water should be prepared for lawn spraying.

So 300 g (1/3 kg) of iron sulphate are dissolved in 10 liters of water.

Product yield: About 1L of solution per 5m2 of lawn, ie for every 1m2 of lawn we need 200ml of a 3% solution of iron sulphate.

The maximum concentration for getting rid of moss should not be more than 5%.

The effect should be visible after 2-3 days after spraying.

It has a characteristic sky-greenish color. It is a fertilizer lowering soil pH - it is best to use it during intensive grass growth. Treatments need to be repeated every few weeks. Application in combating moss Iron (II) sulphate has a strong drying effect on moss. It is characterized by contact activity and causes their browning and then blackening. Iron sulphate can eliminate moss from lawns and prevent it from occurring. It stimulates the plant's immune system and prevents grass diseases. It is used in the treatment of iron chlorosis causing yellowing of leaves. The basis for proper mosquito control is to cover them thoroughly, therefore the liquid forms of the compound are most effective. A valuable advantage of iron sulphate is its activity already at a temperature of 0 ° C. Thanks to this, it can be applied in early spring, during the intensive development of mosses, before the spring fertilization. The ferrous sulphate has the form of a green-blue powder and nodules well soluble in water. With too high concentration it can stain the grass in black, but this effect will subside after a few days. The preparation should not be used when there is a risk of frost, but it can be used already at 0 ° C, and the treatment should be repeated after about 3-4 weeks. An indication of the effective elimination of mosses is their blackening after about 2-3 days from the application of the preparation. Dead moss should be removed with rakes - do not compost. Iron sulphate should only be used in areas covered with grass, where it is well absorbed. Do not use it on building surfaces such as roofs, sidewalks, concrete blocks, walls, terraces, concrete, garden figures and others, because it leaves dark (black or brown), hard to remove coating (it can be removed with 5% oxalic acid solution ).

Product yield: about 1L of solution per 5m2 of lawn - per 1m2 of lawn you need 200ml of a 3% solution of iron sulphate. Maximum concentration in the case of mosses - 5%. The effect should be noticeable after 2-3 days after spraying.
