ECOS Preventative Aquatic Weed Control

ECOS - Early Control Optimized Sonar Performance

ECOS Preventive Aquatic Weed Control is a Sonar-powered prescription designed to optimize performance and provide season-long, broad spectrum weed control in ponds and small lakes. This pre-emergence use of Sonar optimizes efficacy by treating plants as they emerge from the hydro-soil and have low energy reserves, making them susceptible at lower use rates and providing more rapid control. Timing of this pre-emergence use is based upon regional location and local growing zone and growing degree day influence on aquatic plant growth.

SePRO’s ECOS program is simple to implement and will provide excellent control season-long for submersed aquatic weeds. ECOS is guaranteed* by SePRO, providing you a time & frustration-saving solution for submersed weed control.

Don't wait for the problem to show

Reactive treatments don’t normally start until the weeds are visible and by then you are already behind.

  • Mature weeds are more difficult to control
  • More product could be needed for larger plants
  • It takes more time for mature weeds to die off and decompose
  • Reactive treatments could take more time and money in the long run
Be proactive with ECOS

Proactive treatments allow you to stay ahead of unsightly submersed weeds.

  • Younger weeds are easier to control
  • Treating early can use less Chemicals
  • No topped out weeds when you suppress weed growth early
  • Save time with only two applications*
  • Increase your odds of having open water this year
