This product is corrosive to metal equipment and toxic to fish in soft water. Normal application rate is 2.7 pounds per acre foot of water treated. Effective for control of swimmers itch with special application methods. No restrictions on water usage
following application.

Reward – concentrated liquid aquatic herbicide effective against a wide variety of submersed, emergent, and floating aquatic plants including duckweed, naiads, and cattails. Reward poses virtally no environmental risk in aquatic applications because the herbicide concentration rapidly decreases as it is absorbed onto soil, vegetation, and organic matter. Restrictions on water usage following application: livestock consumption – 1 day, irriagation of food crops – 5 days, irrigation of turf and non-food crops- 1-3 days, human drinking - 1-3 days.

Sonar – An aquatic herbicide effective against a variety of aquatic plants; submersed, emergent, and floating (including duckweed and watermeal).
