How to Use Pond Bacteria with Barley Straw Powder

Super’s Choice pond bacteria with barley, is a 2-in-1 product that contains beneficial pond bacteria and pulverized barley straw powder. It is packaged in pre-measured, 8 oz water-soluble packets, for simplified dosing. Just throw the packets directly into the pond, and they will dissolve within minutes of being exposed to the water. These dissolvable packets eliminate the hassles associated with the use of messy powder, such as loose powders blowing in the wind upon application, or loose powders needing to be pre-mixed with pond water prior to applying. Our 8 oz water-soluble packets provide an easy, one-step application when applying beneficial pond bacteria to large ponds and irrigation lakes.

This product is applied at the rate of 8 packets per surface, acre every 2 to 4 weeks. For the initial treatment on problem lakes or ponds, we recommend adding 12-16 packets per surface acre to jump start the pond. If your pond was on a regular bacteria routine prior to the first application or is not showing signs of problems, you can begin with the standard maintenance dose.
