How does barley work to remove the algae you may be wondering? Barley straw is used for the prevention of algae growth. When barley straw begins to decompose, it releases chemicals into the water that stunt the growth of algae, if used correctly.

The addition of barley to the pond will cause the decomposition of the straw and when this reaches a certain stage, will begin reducing the algae in your pond. This can take any time from a couple of weeks to a couple of months, depending on a few factors. The most important factor is the temperature, in summer months where the temperature of the water is above 20°C the process is faster compared to the winter months where the water temperature is below 10°C. Once the straw starts to decompose and release it’s natural chemicals, it should remain active for a few months.

Barley Straw for Ponds is a great natural and environmentally friendly way to kill of the algae and is a popular alternative to chemical pond treatments. A year-round protection that will not harm plants or fish. Float the stick in the pond, ideally placed near the water outlet and tethered just below the surface. When the straw has almost fully decayed, place in a fresh stick then remove the old one two weeks later.

The small amount of hydrogen peroxide is released as the straw rots. Although the straw can be applied any time of year, it is best to add the nets of straw to your pond early in the spring, prior to any algae being visible. It can take 6-8 weeks to notice any results from the straw, however once the straw begins to decompose, it will remain active until it has almost completely decomposed.
