All Natural Full Sized Organic Barley Straw Bale Measuring approximately 32" x 19" x 14" and weighing approximately 26 lbs.

This is a full sized farmer's organic barley straw bale tied with twine. This entire bale could be staked to the shore just under the water line of a large natural bottomed pond. Or it can be broken down into smaller portions and put into our mesh barley bags for easier application and more effective decay. We will often insert rocks into the mesh bags to help them sink just below the surface of the water. One bale will fill approximately 6 mesh bags. If you'd rather have biodegradable bags, try our large burlap bags.  Not as large as our mesh bags, but completely biodegradable. If left float on the surface of the pond, this bale will eventually sink over time and decay.
The barley straw does not begin to affect algae growth until it begins to decay, so apply your barley early in the year for best results. More water circulation and aeration will help with the effectiveness of barley straw.
