Common Barley Questions
What does Barley Straw do? Many packages of barley straw have been sold in the past few years and there has been a tremendous amount of feedback from customers that told us that with proper use, barley straw can lead to much cleaner, clearer water in their ponds.
Is Barley Straw a form of algaecide? No, Barley Straw is not registered with the US Environmental Protection Agency as a pesticide, and therefore no claims are made regarding its use in preventing, removing, controlling or eliminating algae. This is an all-natural product, and does not contain any know pesticides, chemical additives, or even "ingredients"- it is just barley straw.
How does Barley Straw work? As the barley straw decays in the presence of oxygen (and possibly sunlight); natural chemicals are released or produced that help clear water.
