Barley straw has been used for centuries throughout England and Scotland. The barley straw aids in balancing the water quality by lowering the pH and carbonate hardness (KH).
Barley Straw Pellets are manufactured using an exclusive proprietary process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn or other binders. Each bag of Barley Straw Pellets includes a graduated, dry-measure cup with both oz. and ml. measurements for easy application.
For most garden ponds in the Midwest, the first application should be made when the water temperature is at 50 degrees. The spring application needs to be applied early due to the slower rate of decomposition in cooler water. The second application is added by June when the water temperature is close to 70 degrees. The third and fourth applications should be made every six weeks following the second application. Barley Straw Pellets can be used year round. Application rates vary depending on the severity of the problem, temperature of the water and water turbidity. Barley straw is also available as a refined liquid extract.
