Using Barley Straw is a simple and efficient method to keep ponds clear and clean all year long. Since the Middle Ages farmers have known of the benefits of Straw and used it to keep ponds clear.
To best observe the benefits of Barley Straw it should be used continuously throughout the year in conjunction with our Clear Pond BSL (Bio Surge) Liquid and Dry Formula, which can be used year round. Treatment with our Barley Straw can be started at any time.
According to the CAPM, “When barley straw is put into water, its cellular structure starts to break down or decompose aided by a mixture of water, light and oxygen, that is why barley works best when floating near the water surface. A microbial activity process drives this breakdown or decomposition.” It is during this process that chemicals are released which inhibit the growth of algae.
