Pond Calculations

Your pond can be blue and weed-free

Whether your pond is used for irrigation or pleasure, aquatic weeds are detrimental to a healthy and beautiful pond. Excessive weeds can interfere with fishing, boating, swimming and irrigation.

Weed control in ponds can be tricky. Watershed safety means treatment options can be limited. However, there are products available that help control weeds in ponds. Early identification and treatment of a problem will provide the best results. Once the problem has been identified, consult your Southern States dealer to determine the best treatment.

Aquashade, 1 gal or 2.5 gal an aquatic dye registered by EPA, controls weeds by blocking the sunlight.

It is easy to apply and is effective for use in sites ranging from backyard garden pools to large ponds. Application of Aquashade does not restrict livestock watering or swimming and does not interfere with irrigation uses.11101875/11110474
