Barley Straw

Natural, Long-Lasting Treatment for Algae Growth

In recent years, the use of barley straw has become more common as an alternative method for controlling extensive algae growth.

Barley straw does not kill existing algae, but inhibits the growth of new algae. Barley straw is most effective when applied earlier in the year prior to the appearance of algae.
