Ferromel 20

Ferromel 20 is a water soluble formulation of iron sulphate heptahydrate used for hardening and greening turf.

Ferromel should not be applied to hard surfaces as it may cause rust staining.

Ferromel 20 can be used at any time of the year providing frost is not expected. In dry weather, turf treated at the highest rate should subsequently receive a few minutes irrigation to avoid scorching the grass tips. Supplementary irrigation is not required where soil moisture is high.

Key points:

  • Rapidly gives turf a dark green colour
  • Encourages finer leaved grasses to develop
  • Excellent value for money


Fill the spray tank with the required quantity of clean water and slowly add the Ferromel 20, agitating continuously. When using knapsack sprayers, it is best to mix the product with water in a suitable bucket before adding to the tank.

In cold conditions the product will take longer to dissolve so the addition of some hot water to the spray tank, to raise the water temperature during mixing, can speed up the operation.

Make sure the product is completely dissolved before commencing spray application
