Hydrogel 250gm

The ideal aquatic herbicide additive, Hydrogel is tailor made for submerged aquatic weed management.

A SPECIALIST SOLUTION FOR THE CONTROL OF SUBMERGED AQUATIC WEEDS

Hydrogel is a new herbicide additive for Diquat (Reglone) specially developed to overcome issues associated with the control of Submerged Aquatic Weeds.

  • Hydrogel mix is heavier than water and sinks when applied to lakes, ponds and water-courses. It penetrates thermal layers and is less subject to drift than simple water based herbicides.
  • Hydrogel reduces the amount of herbicide to be used as much as 80% compared with conventional application techniques.
  • Hydrogel targets the weed, using less herbicide and less drift.

 

Following the application of Hydrogel to control aquatic weeds, water use is as follows:

  • Swimming, fishing, and other recreational activities can be resumed without restrictions.
  • Minimal restriction on use for livestock consumption (1 day) or drinking water (1–3 days).
  • Minimal restriction for use for irrigation (1–3 days for turf & ornamentals; 5 days for food crops).

Hydrogel is a unique carrier of the herbicide Diquat onto submerged aquatic plants that need to be controlled.

Hydrogel directly targets nuisance weeds by binding the diquat and then attaching the mix to submerged aquatic plants due to it formulation. Effectively reducing Herbicide costs and only treating the unwanted nuisance plants in any desired location with out the need for expensive Mechanical harvesters or Draw down of water bodies.

With virtually no drift of the herbicide from the target plant less herbicide and reduced costs and potential environmental impact.
