MossKade® is an effective and environmentally friendly way of removing liverwort, moss, lichen and algae.
Liverwort and moss removal Liverwort is a type of moss with leaves, and there are many different species.
Unlike plants, liverwort and mosses do not have a root and vain system. These differences are the reason a MossKade® coating has an effect on liverwort and mosses, but rarely on the plants. Sometimes scorching is possible, if product is not properly applied, therefore we always recommend doing a test spray on your plants, because sensitivity in plants increases with higher temperatures.
Algae and Lichen removal are the same way mosses are removed; also algae and lichen are found on wood, concrete and roofs.
On absorbent surfaces, MossKade® tends to have a longer effect, because MossKade® is a coating, the endurance is related to the speed the coating is wearing of.
Long wet periods; cause a quicker wear off and shorter effect.
Lichen is a symbiosis between algae and fungus.
It will take a longer time to fight the algae in the lichen.
Once the algae is killed, the remains of the fungus will also disappear.
*MossKade® has no effect on fungus.
For the best results, we recommend to stay within the parameters of the user guidelines.
For a test spray in crops, we advise to start with a 1:10 (MossKade®/water) and use a wetting agent.
On wood and concrete surfaces, brushing in MossKade® with a soft brush is very effective.
After using MossKade®, we recommend to clean the equipment thoroughly. MossKade® is a coating and will cause clogging if not cleaned.
