It helps with moss control, diseases such as fusarium patch and take-all patch which like high ph turf surfaces, as well as helping in worm control.
Its most common use though is as a moss killer. Regular applications every 6-8 weeks in the winter months will help stop any moss invading your lawn. It also has the added benefit of burning off certain weeds if used regularly and helps prevent algae problems.
