Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets Plus is an environmentally responsible, cost-efficient pond conditioner that works all year to keep your pond healthy and clear. Barley straw and selected natural peats have been processed and packaged to make them easy and clean to apply. These pellets are manufactured using an exclusive proprietary pelleting process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn, and other binders. The barley straw is harvested and stored under climatic conditions that assure the quality of these essential ingredients.
Barley Straw Pellets Plus are rich in organic peat which softens pond water-reducing nitrate and phosphate concentrations in the water column-and provides a buffering agent and ion attenuation in lined ponds that additionally gives them some beneficial properties of earthen ponds!
Note that these pellets will leave a residue on the bottom of the pond. The bacteria in the Microbe-Lift products as well as Microbe-Lift Sludge Away will digest this organic material.
