Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + - 4.4 lbs.
Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + is an environmentally responsible and cost-effective pond conditioner. It 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 to apply with no mess.
Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + are manufactured using an exclusive proprietary process that eliminates the use of wheat, corn or other binders. The barley straw is harvested and stored under climatic conditions that assure quality of essential ingredients. The process also makes these pellets weed-free. Application of these pellets under water prevents the formation of black mold.
Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + is rich in humic acids which are very beneficial to the aquatic environment. Humic acid softens pond water, reduces the negative effect of phosphate and generally improves the environment for your fish. The humic acid will also chelate other metals, such as mercury or arsenic. In addition, oxygen and sunlight activate humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide naturally and at a low level of release.
Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets + is completely harmless to fish and higher pond plants. The natural, biological activity of fungus and bacteria break down barley straw to produce humic acids. Therefore, it can be used over a long period of time. The peat has already been broken down in ponds thousands of years ago. The peat becomes part of the substrate of your pond. Depending on level and length of use, the peat will buffer the pH and control some alkalinity. Some of the clearest pond waters stand over peat bottoms.
Supplied in a resealable zipper bag. Each bag includes a graduated, dry-measure cup with both oz. and ml measures.
