What aquatic weeds are controlled by Sonar AS?
When is the best time to treat with Sonar AS?
It is best to apply Sonar AS early in the season when aquatic weeds begin growth.
Can I use Sonar AS to spot treat weeds growing in my pond?
No, Sonar AS is a whole pond treatment. This should be applied throughout the entire body of water.
How does Sonar work?
The active ingredient in Sonar is fluridone. After the Sonar is sprayed across the pond's surface, it spreads throughout the whole water body. Sonar is absorbed through the plant shoots. Once absorbed into the plant, it stops the formation of carotene, which is needed to transmit energy absorbed from chlorophyll. In the absence of carotene, plants begin to turn white. Begin noticing results in 15-30 days. Complete management of weed species in 30-90 days.
Aquatic Weed Treatment Instructions:
Mix in bucket or tank sprayer. Proper Application Requires Mixing Sonar AS with water. Mix 8 oz of Sonar AS with 1 gallon of water. Spray or pour mixture in 3-4 spots around the pond. It is not necessary for weeds to be sprayed directly with Sonar AS. Pond should have very little flow through for at least 30 days so that the treatment is not dilluted. 3 gallon Sprayer sold here
