Aquashade® Aquatic Plant Growth Control 1 Gallon

Precise blend of dyes shades out underwater growth.
$59.99
i h

More than a colorant. Aquashade® Aquatic Plant Growth Control is a precise EPA registered blend of dyes proven to control underwater aquatic plants by limiting sunlight available for photosynthesis.

• Inhibits photosynthesis under water
• Powerful formulation is tested, proven to perform by stopping photosynthesis
• The choice of professional applicators to prevent and control under water weeds
• Most effective in water deeper than two feet
• Use in conjunction with herbicides or algaecides for control of surface algae mats or shallow-water plants.

 

How to Apply Aquashade® Aquatic Plant Growth Control 

Measure out required amount of Aquashade into a pourable container or apply directly from the product container by pouring around shoreline water and/or in offshore areas from a boat. Aquashade will mix throughout the water on its own, however, more widespread application or aeration devices/fountains will provide quicker dispersion. In freezing climates, Aquashade may be poured onto the ICE in a 3 foot (1 meter) diameter circle it will melt a hole and disperse underneath. (Be certain ice conditions are safe before making application.)

When to Apply

For best results, apply Aquashade as a pre-emergent (prior to plant germination) before the growing season. Aquashade may even be applied directly onto ice cover, (where applicable). Use during the growing season will suppress the rate and extent of underwater growth, but may not eliminate it. Aquashade has reduced effectiveness in waters less than 2 feet deep and on matured submersed aquatic plants. It does not control floating algae mats, free floating plants, or emergent (shoreline) vegetation. These plants can be physically removed or treated with an appropriate EPA registered aquatic herbicide or algaecide if more complete control is desired. When using algaecides or aquatic herbicides, always follow label restrictions, precautions and directions for use.

Dose

Treatment Area (4 Feet Deep)
Aquashade - 0.5 PPM
Aquashade - 0.8 PPM
Aquashade - 1.5 PPM
Up To 1/4 Acre 20 oz 32 oz 60 oz
Up To 1/2 Acre 40 oz 64 oz 120 oz
Up To 1 Acre 80 oz 1 gal 1.9 gal


Use the lower (0.5-0.8 ppm) rates early for suppression of submersed plants (Leafy Pondweed, Chara, Slender Naiad, Watermilfoil, Hydrilla) and Filamentous Green (Spirogyra sp.) and Bluegreen algae growing at depths greater than 2 feet of the surface. Use higher rates (1.5- 2.0 ppm) in shallow waters or in-season where growth is within 2 feet of surface.

Restrictions

Allow at least one hour for Aquashade to disperse throughout the water body before using water for swimming, irrigation or livestock watering or avoid pouring concentrate within 50 ft. of these intake/use areas, allowing dye to self-disperse into them.  See product label for complete details.
