The AERF publication, "Advantages and Disadvantages of Aquatic Plant Management Techniques" discusses the variety of control methods available for nearly all of your aquatic weed problems. This paper helps point out that there truly is no "one-size-fits-all" model for aquatic plant management. What works for one plant species in one waterbody, may not be as transferable as one might think to another water body. From biological control of hydrilla through grass carp to the chemical control of water hyacinth, this paper has it all!
