How to identify and manage pond weeds

A pond with growth.

Pond weeds in high densities, both native and invasive, can interfere with recreational fishing and swimming, crop irrigation, and livestock management. Join Horticulture Agents Matt Jones (Chatham County Center) and Cody Craddock (Randolph County Center) for a workshop on strategies to manage 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 (A, D, N, X). Two versions of the in-person workshops will be offered in Chatham County (Pittsboro) and Randolph County (Asheboro).
