Farm General Aquatic Herbicide is a complete broad-spectrum post-emergence herbicide for weed control in aquatic sites. This product can be applied to emerged weeds in all bodies of fresh and brackish water which may be flowing, non-flowing or transient. This includes lakes, rivers, streams, ponds, estuaries, rice levees, seeps, irrigation and drainage ditches, canals, reservoirs and wastewater treatment facilities.
Serious weed control for aquatic sites.
Where to use:
Use to control weeds, woody brush and trees in aquatic sites including:
|Irrigation and drainage ditches||Wastewater treatment facilities||Canals|
When to use:
Annual weeds are easiest to control when they are small. Best control of most perennial weeds is obtained when treatment is made at late growth stages approaching maturity. See the “WEEDS CONTROLLED” section of this label for specific weed rates.
Always use the higher product application rate in the specified range when weed growth is heavy or dense, or when weeds are growing in an undisturbed (non-cultivated) area.
Reduced weed control may result from treating weeds with disease or insect damage, weeds heavily covered with dust, or weeds under poor growing conditions.
For best results, spray coverage must be uniform and complete.
Do not spray foliage to the point of run-off.
