USES FOR IRON SULPHATE

It is used as a lawn conditioner,and is the active substance in many commercial moss killers. 1 Kg of Iron sulphate will treat 500 sq metres using a solution of between 1% (10g/L of water) and 3% (20g/L of water) - (apply at a rate of 5 sq m per litre). This will lead to greening up of grass and hardening of lawn against disease.

Use of the product at dilution rates higher than 30g/L could result in undesired blackening of moss.

Application of ferrous sulphate to hard surfaces such as concrete should be avoided as rust-like staining will occur.

No more than 3 applications per year should be carried out on the lawn.

Industrially, ferrous sulfate is mainly used as a precursor to other iron compounds.

It is a reducing agent, mostly for the reduction of chromate in cement.

Used in the manufacture of inks.

It is used a mordant for wool dyeing.

Ferrous sulphate can also be used to stain concrete and some limestones and sandstones a yellowish rust color.

Woodworkers use ferrous sulfate solutions to color maple wood a silvery hue.

In horticulture it is used for treating iron chlorosis (yellowing of folliage caused by iron deficiency). Although not as rapid-acting as iron chelate, its effects are longer-lasting. It can be mixed with compost and dug into to the soil to create a store which can last for years.
