Can brown patches on lawn be treated successfully with sulphate of iron ?



Sulphate of iron is the main component of moss killing treatments, so I can't see it would help brown patches much. Best to establish why you've got brown patches in the first place.

Brown patches on lawns may be causes by pet urine, chemical spill, leatherjackets [crane fly larvae (daddy longlegs)] eat plant roots, so do chafer grubs (vine weevil larvae).
