The iron salts consist of three pesticide active ingredients that are eligible for reregistration: Iron (III) sulfate, Iron (II) sulfate monohydrate, and Iron (II) sulfate heptahydrate. Iron salts are registered for use as herbicides to control moss on lawns, turf, ornamental herbaceous plants, woody shrubs and vines. Registered products are formulated as soluble concentrates and granulars. They are applied by sprinkler can, hose-end sprayer, spreader, or by hand. The major use of iron salts in the United States is non-pesticidal, as a fertilizer micronutrient. Iron salts also are used as an electrolyte in dry cell batteries, as an animal feed additive, as a galvanizer and as an emulsion-breaker. They have further uses in water purification and sewage treatment, and in textile dying and calico printing.
