>From the May/June 99 issue of the Organic Gardening, I found this
article called 'Keep Ponds Clear' on page 9. It says that using barley
straw is best to control algae problem. But any kinda straw will work.
For severe problems, use 3 ounces of barley straw for every square
yard of water surface. Apply about every 6 months or til the straw has
rotted. Wheat straw or cornstalks are also effective.
