Natural Solution This environmentally-responsible, cost-effective pond conditioner is a natural and organic way to a healthy pond environment! Barley straw and selected natural peat have been processed and packaged to make them easy and clean to apply. 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.
Better than Barley Microbe-Lift® Barley Straw Pellets PLUS Peat work better and faster than typical barley pellets. The humic acid in the pellets produces hydrogen peroxide, an oxidizing agent that helps keep water clear, while also neutralizing dangerous metals like copper or arsenic. The organic peat in the pellets reduces nitrate and phosphate concentrations, while providing a buffering agent and ion attenuation -- giving lined ponds some of the same beneficial properties of earthen ponds!
