    Hi and welcome to Lawnsite :) If your asking about moss control for turf, look for a granular product that contais ferris sulfate. For a liquid I think it's called ferric sulfate anhydrous. For non turf use, roofs, sidewalks and the such, look for a product with a Zink compound. I want to say zink chloride but I'm not sure, but that rings a bell. Hope this helps.....Oly

    If it's not on turf, I use a bleach and water mix, works great.

    Also determine why you have moss on the green...perhaps you should look at your aeration and verticutting practives and increase their frequency and depth. Also look at your watering practices, perhaps you are overwatering.

    I've used DeMoss in the past however even after it dies you still have to sort of rake it off. I just save on herbicide and rake it.
    Yes, I agree with SodKing. Find the problem first- shaded damp area? - ph imbalance? - compacted soil?
