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.
