Malted Barley is a natural, organic soil amendment that is made from barley that has been germinated and then dried. The germination process activates the enzymes in the barley, which makes it a powerful plant growth booster.

Of all the malted grains, Malted Barley possesses the widest range of enzyme types and has a diastatic value more than others such as Wheat or Rye.

The Malted Barley we source comes from an organic source and is very clean by nature, there are many types of this Malted grain available but we searched for a long time to find one that does not have Glyphosate used on it during production meaning no residual in the finished product. Believe it or not, even food grade products have an allowable level of this, so food grade isn’t enough and while most sources of Malted Barley you will find are from food source, this doesn’t guarantee anything.

Benefits of using Malted Barley:

  • Improves plant health and resistance to disease and pests
  • Promotes root growth and development
  • Increases yields
  • Improves the taste and quality of fruits and vegetables
  • Helps to balance soil pH
  • Supports microbial activity in the soil
  • Increases the availability of nutrients in the soil

How to use Malted Barley:

Malted Barley can be used in a variety of ways, including:

  • Mixing it into the soil when planting or transplanting
  • Adding it to a compost pile
  • Brewing or fermenting it to create a liquid fertilizer

We use clean, stainless steel grinding equipment to grind our Barley to a fine consistency.

For use in soil mixing, top dressing applications, the milled barley is the easiest to use, pre milling has not shown any scientific decrease in enzyme availability to any appreciable degree especially when sealed. 

We also supply it unmilled for people who prefer to grind theirs day of, or use unmilled barley.


The dosage of Malted Barley will vary depending on the plant, the soil, and the desired results. However, a general rule of thumb is to use 2 to 4 tablespoons (approx 28 grams to 56 grams) per 5 liters of soil.
