Barley Straw Extract for Algae Growth Prevention - 2 x 1L

Aquatic Barley Straw Extract - for Algae in Ponds & Water Features

Aquatic Barley Straw Extract is the natural eco-friendly way to limit new algae growth in lakes, dams, ponds, fountains, water features, fish tanks and garden water tanks.

Aquatic Barley Straw Extract is the new development from the traditional old time remedy for algae control using Aquatic Barley Straw Bales. The use of barley straw bales for the control of algae in water has been well documented in Europe and can be traced back to the pre industrial era, when farming and agriculture prevailed.

When Aquatic Barley Straw Bales are placed in water, they begin to decompose. This process of decomposition releases phenolic compounds, these compounds have a natural signature similar to that of hydrogen peroxide. It is these natural compounds that are believed to be the factor which give barley straw its natural ability to limit new growth of algae.

Some of the limitations of using Aquatic Barley Straw Bales is that they need to be correctly placed in the water body, loosely bundled and require adequate circulation in a well oxygenated water body. Aquatic Barley Straw Bales can take from 4 to 10 weeks for the decomposition process to commence working, so is relatively slow to take effect. Aquatic Barley Straw Bales can look unsightly and produce some odours.

Due to some of these limitations, Aquatic Barley Straw Extracthas been developed as a convenient way to deliver the same benefits of limiting new algae growth which is natural, eco friendly and safe.
