An organic fertiliser which feeds the lawn, destroys the moss and leaves no black debris sounds too good to be true.

But MO Bacter (new to the UK) does all three – and the bacteria digests the dead moss, removing the need for raking.

This unique product, from Viano of Belgium, is an award-winning slow-release granular fertiliser which eradicates moss by secondary action, feeds grass and improves the soil. Scarifying after treatment is not necessary.

Moss dies from an excess of potassium but leaves no black debris. The dead moss is then digested by the bacteria in MO Bacter (npk: 5-5-20). MO Bacter becomes active when the soil temperature reaches 10degC.

MO Bacter is best applied in March, April and May (or early autumn) for best results and is supplied in 20 kilo bags at £29.90 (inc VAT and delivery).

One kilogram treats up to 10 square metres, so a bag will be enough to treat up to 200 square metres.

Surrey-based DJ Turfcare is the sole UK distributor of Viano. In trials two inches of moss was virtually eliminated in six months, with no need for scarifying to remove debris. And stonework was completely unmarked.

“This product will revolutionise the way moss is treated on grass near stonework,” says David Jenkins, managing director of DJ Turfcare. A leading professional lawn specialist said he had tested MO Bacter and found it to be “very effective and very efficient.”

In January MO Bacter won the Turf Professional Best New Product of the Year at the BTME show in Harrogate.

MO Bacter is unique as a moss eradicator because moss does not go black but is digested by the bacteria. Lawns are left free of debris and there is no need to scarify. Grassed areas will be fed evenly over a three-month period.

It is an organic product that is harmless to animals and wildlife and will not damage border plants or paths.

*MO Bacter, which is granular, is available for both professional and domestic users. It is available in 20kilo packs at £29.90 (inc VAT and delivery).
