Horgan, A R (2006) The potential for slug control with ferric phosphate. In: Atkinson, C; Ball, B; Davies, D H K; Rees, R; Russell, G; Stockdale, E A; Watson, C A; Walker, R and Younie, D (Eds.)

Slug and snail damage, especially on young plants can mean serious economic loss for growers. Organic growers have in the past had few, if any, effective products to use for their control. Now ferric phosphate has recently gained organic status from the Organic Farmers and Growers organisation. Its unique mode of action, environmental profile and effectiveness against a range of slug and snail species will make this a first choice for all organic growers. The eventual breakdown components iron and phosphate, will contribute to the crop’s nutrient supply.
