Possibilities of biological control of the aquatic weeds Eichhornia crassipes and Salvinia auriculata in India



Possibilities of biological control of the aquatic weeds Eichhornia crassipes and Salvinia auriculata in India



Aquatic weeds in SE Asia Proceedings of a Regional Seminar on Noxious Aquatic Vegetation, New Delhi 1973: 323-329



Eichhornia crassipes and Salvinia molesta are two very serious alien aquatic weeds in India which adversely affect agriculture, inland fisheries and water transportation. They also harbour mosquitoes and are harmful to hydroelectric installations. CIBC has investigated the possibilities of biological control of these two weeds.
