Our Malted Barley is 100% Australian grown and malted to perfection, ensuring optimal levels of enzymes and vitamins. This is 2 row - NOT 4 row Barley, which has a much more favourable enzymatic and sugar profile to modern 4 row production varieties.
Malted Barley is an incredible soil amendment capable of directly upcycling the breakdown of soil amendments through its diverse enzyme, bacteria and fungal content, and is a potent plant growth booster. The microflora that live in/on the Malted Barley are capable of delivering natural hormones which increase leaf, root and shoot mass of many plants resulting in improved growth and resistance to adverse conditions.
We supply our Malted Barley either unground, or pre-ground. While, generally speaking its best to grind shortly before use, in practicality and in our testing, it has been shown to make very little difference so long as the amendment is stored in a well sealed, cool, dry and dark location. Using the grains unground isn't recommended though, so do make sure you give them a thorough bust up if you do purchase the unground type, before use.
Malted Barley has an approx NPK of 1.5-0.75-0.5 and is known to contain enzymes a-amylase ,B-amylase, a-glucosidase, Chitinase and limit dextrinase among others.
Application rates can range from 2 to 4 Tablespoons (approx 28 grams to 56 grams) per 5L of soil.
