an old feller told me the best thing to use is alfalfa hay. he said to put at least 4 bales in my pond near the edge. anyone ever hear of this, or any other iders. im trying to stay away from chemicals.

I believe Barley hay is more effective if I remember right. I did some research on it. You might want to do a search on Barley Hay.

Grass carp - depends on how big your pond is. 4-6 for a 5 acre pond is sufficient to start. They reproduce just fine and can handle winters unless the entire pond freezes.
