The NC Agricultural Chemicals Manual lists herbicides labeled for aquatic use, and their relative efficacy for different weeds. Find the aquatic weeds portion of the handbook here .

The NC State Department of Applied Ecology has a list of resources that I used for the workshop here. including information about using triploid grass carp, as well as their useful weed management and Pond Management guides.

Pond Weed Management Workshop

Pond weeds in high densities, both native and invasive, can interfere with recreational fishing and swimming, crop irrigation, and livestock management. Join Chatham County Horticulture Extension Agent Matt Jones for a free, two- hour lecture on management strategies of aquatic weeds in farm ponds. We will discuss how to identify different groups of aquatic plants and their control using both biological and herbicidal methods. Participants can receive two hours of NCDA&CS pesticide continuing education credits.
