Micro-Lyfe Barley Boss contains weed-free barley straw and natural peats that capture and bind excessive nutrients. These pellets are rich in humic acids, which are capable of chelating harmful metals. After it breaks down, MicroLyfe Barley Boss becomes part of the lake’s substrate in the form of peat. Since peat is a natural buffer, continued use prevents large pH swings.
Unlike some other barley products, Micro-Lyfe Barley Boss does not contain wheat, corn, or  other binders that can actually increase nutrients in your lake.
