Abstract: Volume I provides information on the use and fate of US Environmental Protection Agency-approved and registered herbicides for managing nuisance aquatic vegetation in US Army Corps of Engineer projects and navigable waterways. These herbicides include acrolein, copper, 2,4-D, dicamba, dichlobenil, diquat, endothall, fluridone, glyphosate, and simazine. Information on adjuvant classification and use is provided. Site factors affecting herbicide selection, such as water body uses and constraints, water quality, and hydology, are discussed. The selection and calibration of herbicide application equipment, for use with liquid and granular formulations, is examined. Volume II is a plant identification and herbicide susceptibility guide for nuisance floating, emersed, and submersed aquatic plants. Color plates, line drawings, plant and habitat descriptions, and distribution for over 50 species are included.
