Aquatic Barley Straw Extract is manufactured for Australian conditions and water bodies from 100% Australian grown organic barley. It is grown, harvested, processed and distributed by Australian owned and operated companies. It’s a highly concentrated extract which can be delivered quickly and easily to limit new algae growth in lakes, dams, ponds, fountains, water features and water tanks.

Aquatic Barley Straw Extract is best applied before algae appears as it works best as an algae growth suppressant, limiting new algae growth. It’s ideal for use immediately after a pond, fountain or water feature or in lakes, dams, ponds and garden water tanks, prior to algae first appearing.
