Fluridone Aquatic herbicide registration announced
Alligare, LLC is pleased to announce that effective immediately Fluridone herbicide is available for the U.S. aquatic market. This registration follows close behind the recent agreement between Alligare and Baker Hughes granting them the exclusive global distribution of MAGNACIDE™H HERBICIDE.
Fluridone provides effective control of submersed and floating vascular aquatic vegetation and some algae varieties including duckweed, Brazilian elodea, cabomba, curlyleaf pondweed, Eurasian water milfoil, hydrilla, salvina spp. Fluridone’s selectivity is dependent upon dosage, timing, stages of growth, application technique and water velocity.
“The Fluridone introduction is an exciting addition to the product line for the aquatics market,” comments Eric Barkemeyer, Director of Aquatics for Alligare. “As with a number of products in the aquatic plant control market, water resource managers and individual pond owners now have a choice of a post-patent Fluridone formulation.” In addition to Fluridone and MAGNACIDE™H HERBICIDE, Alligare also offers other products for use in aquatic applications – 2,4-D; Diquat; Glyphosate; Ecomazapyr 2 SL and Ecotriclopyr 3 SL.
