Chemical control of aquatic weeds: A review

Hem Kant Jha


Aquatic weeds can be regarded as hydrophytes occupying different niche in the aquatic environment. They grow gregariously in the new limnetic habitat suppressing the growth and metabolic activities of native plants to such an extent that the latter may be subject to temporary or permanent extinction. Economic drain, on account of the obnoxious weeds is not an exceptional aspect. The present work deals with chemical control of aquatic weeds, implemented at Jamtara district of Jharkhand state. Preventive measures were duly adopted to ensure that the side effects of the operation were minimal. Attention was also paid to the important touchpoints concerned with the use of herbicides.
