Ferrous sulphate monohydrate is easily soluble in water. It is being dried or treated with anti-caking to ensure stability and free-flowing properties. Its melting point is 64°C, and boiling point is 330°C at 760 mmHg. Solubility: 1g/1.5ml at 25°C water or 1g/0.5ml at 100°C water, insoluble in alcohol.

lA source of iron
l Used in turf culture as a moss killing agent.
l Market gardeners often include this product in mixes as it enhances the green colour in plant leaves
l Occasionally used as a soil acidifying agent
l Can be sprayed onto marginally deficient crops as it is water soluble
Ferrous Sulphate is water soluble so it can be sprayed onto marginally deficient crops if necessary. In plants, iron is important for chlorophyll production. It is required for enzymes involved in photosysnthesis and respiration.
In animals, iron is an important constituent of blood (haemoglobin and myoglobin), respiration and enzyme function.
Ferrous Sulphate is rarely used for correcting deficiencies. Its main application is as a moss killer. Market gardeners often include Fe in mixes as it enhances the green colour in plant leaves.
For moss control, aim for 5g iron sulphate/m2 of turf lawn if applied as a solid product (this is equivalent to 50kg iron sulphate/ha). Alternatively, dissolve at 5g/litre of water and apply to lawns at 1 litre/m2.
