Fluridone Aquatic Herbicide
Fluridone low dose systemic herbicide selectively controls many of the most troublesome aquatic weeds for a year or longer. Treated water can be used immediately for swimming, drinking and fishing, thus allowing for recreational activities to continue. Lakes, reservoirs, ponds, potable waters and canals may be treated.
- Treat during periods of active plant growth. Leaves, stems and roots absorb and translocate Fluridone throughout the plant. Plants display leaf bleaching and slowly decay (45-90 days). This minimizes the risk for low dissolved oxygen levels and any negative fish impact.
- Long term control occurs when applied to static or bodies of water with minimal water discharge or dilution.
- Fluridone controls duckweed, salvinia, hydrilla, Eurasian water milfoil, curly leaf pondweed, waterlily, southern naiad and additional species. Treatment concentrations typically range from 15-75 parts per billion.
To apply, determine the volume of water to be treated in acre/feet. Identify target and non-target plants and any irrigation uses. Select dose from label and apply during active plant growth.
Apply by backpack, broadcast, injection, drip systems or aerially. Bleaching injury symptoms occur in 7-10 days. Long-term contact required, 45-90 days; best used in static or low flow sites. Can mix with other aquatic herbicides for BMP. Verify Fluridone concentrations according to plan.
