Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Extract

Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Extract

Liquid concentrate barley straw extract specifically formulated to naturally balance pond water and improve clarity. Goes to work on contact, decomposition begins immediately, no messy residual. One bottle is equal to multiple barley straw bales. The chart below is designed for first time users. After initial dosing the product goes considerably further. A Liquid Extract of Barley Straw Especially Helpful Where Bottom Drains Are Present. An environmentally responsible, cost-efficient pond conditioner that is a clean & easy, natural & organic approach to a healthy pond environment.

Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets

Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets

Made with 100% natural and organic ingredients, this product improves water quality, fish and plant health. Barley Straw Pellets are the most convenient form of barley today. They should be introduced preferably where water is flowing and the depth is less than three feet. You may also place some in your filter media box. You may start your application any time of the year. Enriched with peat and humic acid, this revolutionary formula works faster & better with Less Mess & Cost and is easier to apply than bales, pillows and pads! Matures pond water chemistry, Buffers pH,Works year round. Disperses quickly by simple broadcast of pellets into the pond or packing in a porous fabric sock and suspending in pond or available chamber in skimmer or filter. Releases decomposition by-products immediately. Recommended for use with all Microbe-Lift bacterial and enzymatic pond products. Provides a slow steady release of beneficial ingredients through natural activity. Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets is an environmentally responsible, cost-efficient 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 pelleting 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. Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets works in much the same way as barley straw...only faster! Whereas barley straw works by releasing certain natural chemicals as it biodegrades, so do the pellets in Barley Straw Pellets, only the breakdown compounds are released faster: dispersing equally throughout the water; reacting photo chemically with sunlight; and activating humic acids to produce hydrogen peroxide - an oxidizing agent that also helps to keep the water clear - naturally and at a low level of release. The humic acid will also chelate metals such as copper or arsenic. Microbe-Lift Barley Straw 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! Please note: Microbe-Lift Barley Straw Pellets will leave a residue on the bottom of the pond. The bacteria in the Microbe-Lift products as well as Microbe-Lift Sludge Away will digest this organic residual.

Microbe-Lift Concentrated Barley Straw Extract Plus Peat

Microbe-Lift Concentrated Barley Straw Extract Plus Peat

All the Benefits of Concentrated Barley Straw Extract PLUS Added Liquid Peat To Help Maintain An Ideal pH in Alkaline Ponds! 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! Maturing A Pond Biologically and Chemically. When a pond's ecosystem is mature and balanced, the water is usually clear and healthy for aquatic life. This maturation process is a function of the microbiological and chemical properties of the water. NATURAL CHEMICAL MATURATION Microbe-Lift Barley Straw LIQUID & DRY formulations help to mature the pond with natural chemicals just as a pure mountain stream matures through the years by the introduction of natural breakdown products from trees, plants, etc. These natural breakdown products often include humic and fulvic acid and organic acids that have a natural ability to sequester, or tie up, inorganic compounds, so their concentrations in the pond don't get to levels that would unbalance the ponds ecosystem. These substances can also lead to natural purification of the pond through a slow release of hydrogen peroxide as they react with sunlight. The hydrogen peroxide is produced at levels that help purify the water while not having any adverse effects on desirable aquatic life. The sequestering, in conjunction with microbiological cycling, provides a stable natural ecosystem in your pond. BIOLOGICAL MATURATION The microbiological maturation process involves development of symbiotic populations of bacteria, which stabilize the critical organic and inorganic components of the pond. The microorganisms do this through their ability to promote "biogeochemical cycles" - including carbon, nitrogen and phosphorous cycles - elements critical to all forms of aquatic life. By stabilizing these components, the bacteria prevent pollution of the pond. It can take some time to accomplish this "biological maturation" in a man-made pond and may never occur as the maturation process is constantly interrupted by certain pond practices like cleaning out the pond. The process can be accelerated significantly through the use of Microbe-Lift PL - a virtual "ecosystem in a bottle" - and mimics the complex interdependent populations in a mature pond.
