Aquatic Plant Management

    Aquaplant's Pond Management Diagnostics Tool
    is a user friendly educational interface to learn about aquatic plants. It was designed by Texas A&M Cooperative Extension to help pond owners identify aquatic plants and learn about different management techniques to control them. These include mechanical, biological and chemical control options. The site contains excellent pictures of different plants by vegetation type, making plant identification relatively quick and easy. Some of the chemical control recommendations and approvals may vary between Texas and California so users should be certain to follow label instructions for California when using chemical controls.
  • Purdue University Cooperative Extension Service's Aquatic Plant Management site includes a wealth of information to understand the different types of aquatic plants and their role in pond ecosystems. The site also provides information on how to minimize or prevent aquatic plant infestations and how they can be managed using preventive, mechanical, biological and chemical methods.
