Control water hyacinth through herbicides

Control water hyacinth through herbicides

Indian Farming 38(3): 19, 21

In the canal system of the Godarari River water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) poses a threat to navigation, fish production, irrigation flow, water quality and hygiene. Under natural conditions a pair of plants can spread over 1 ha of water in 1 year, while about 140 x 105 seeds/ha can be produced and can remain viable on the canal bottom for about 15 years.
