Aquatic Weed Management

Aquatic plants are necessary for maintaining the balance of nature and offering food, protection, oxygen, and shelter to aquatic species. One reality of growing citrus in Florida flatwoods areas is that nearly every citrus grower will sooner or later experience aquatic weed control problems ( Fig. 1 ). Maintaining a balance in the aquatic system while sustaining crop success and avoiding loss of income can be a challenge. For example, over the long-term, the inefficiency of a clogged intake system on an irrigation pump can result in excessive fuel consumption and diminished water delivery to the trees. The consequences can ...

A chokehold on Oregon's estuaries
SALEM, Oregon—Non-native cordgrass begs the question, “Just how bad can a grass be?” You may not want to know the answer. Although wild hogs, quagga and zebra mussels, and yellow starthistle tend to grab the invasive species spotlight, lesser known species, such as non-native cordgrasses (Spartina spp.), are invading salt marshes and mud flats, threatening some of the most productive ecosystems on the West Coast. Because of their ability to choke estuaries, the Oregon Invasive Species Council features non-native cordgrasses as the October Invasive Species of the Month at http://www.oregon.gov/OISC/calendar2009.shtml .

Opinion: Pesticide pollution must be curbed in urban areas, too
Too many Californians associate pesticide use only with large-scale agricultural operations. In reality, pesticide sales are split about evenly between agricultural and nonagricultural products, including home and garden pesticides and institutional products like chlorine used to sanitize drinking water. A small but growing number of consumers are buying organic produce because of concern about the effect of pesticides on their health and the environment. There is much less awareness that use of pesticides to kill ants and other pests in our own homes and gardens can harm the environment. For example, surface water monitoring ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Regional Council Improves Lake Pest Monitoring
Bay of Plenty Regional Council is planning to improve the effectiveness of its aquatic plant pest surveillance programme in Rotorua's lakes. This week's Regulation, Monitoring and Operations committee meeting heard that last year the Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) was contracted to review the programme. The review found the programme was well founded, and based on a targeted approach which maximised the likelihood of detecting incursions at lakes where aquatic pests would have the greatest effect on recreational activities and lake ecosystems. It also recommended several actions to improve the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

How can I keep duckweed out of my pond? - Yahoo! Answers
I have a pond that's approximately 40' X 80', and every year it gets grown over with what looks like a green mat of what I'm told is duckweed. The pond's not aerated and is primarily a runoff pond that can get quite low in the heat of summer, but has never actually dried up. (I'm in the Midwest) Short of running an aerator, which I plan to do eventually, I was wondering if I could treat it with something to kill the duckweed, but not harm the grasses, frogs, fish and so on that I enjoy having in the pond. Any help would be appreciated, as the pond is just now beginning ...
