The use of barley straw bales for the control of algae in water has been well documented in Europe and can be traced back to the pre industrial era, when farming and agriculture prevailed.
When barley straw bales are placed in water, they begin to decompose.

It is these natural compounds that are believed to be the factor which give barley straw its natural ability to limit new growth of algae.
