Herbicides for Aquatic Weed Control
If in doubt, check with the Australian Pesticides and Veterinary Medicines Authority (APVMA) website at www.apvma.gov.au.
Only herbicides registered for use in pasture and non-cropping situations – or included under off-label provisions - are listed in the following table. For recommendations in specific crops consult an agronomist.
Care must be taken in using herbicides as non-target plants contacted may be harmed.
Guidelines for Safe and Effective Herbicide Use Near Waterways.
There may be a number of products with the same active ingredient some with alternate formulations (concentration) registered for control of a weed eg: Glyphosate 360 g/L, Glyphosate 450 g/L may be registered for use on the same weed. Alternate formulations such as these will have a different application rate. ALWAYS check the label.
* These products are not registered for this use in Tasmania and will not be mentioned on product labels, however Permit Number – PER11030 issued by the Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Medicines Authority allows this specific use. If using this method and herbicide you will require a copy of this off-label permit.
