Just as Microbe-Lift PL biologically matures the pond's ecosystem, Barley Straw Pellets Plus chemically matures it like it would if aged through the introduction of rain and runoff water passing through decaying vegetation. The pellets sink to the bottom within minutes and dissolve quickly. It may turn the pond a tea-color for 10-14 days and does leave a residue from the peat. Barley Straw Pellets are an environmentally responsible, cost-efficent pond conditioner that is a natural and organic way to a healthy pond environment. Barley straw and selected natural peats have been processed and packaged to make them easy and clean to apply. Manufactured using an exclusive proprietary 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. Whereas barley straw works by releasing certain natural chemicals as it biodegrades, so do the pellets - only the breakdown compounds are released faster, dispersing equally throughout the water, reacting photochemically with sunlight and activating humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide (an oxidizing agent that also helps keep water clear) naturally and at a low level of release. The humic acid will also chelate metals such as copper or arsenic. These pellets 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.
