Description: Technical note
Purpose: This technical note describes experimentation used to develop methods of culturing Hydrilla verticillata (L. f.) Royle (hydrilla) to obtain plants with consistent but wideranging nutritional and physical characteristics. Results of this research will allow laboratory testing of the impacts of the structural and nutritional quality of hydrilla on insect and fungal pathogen biological control agents
