Volume I provides information on the use and fate of U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA)-approved and registered herbicides for managing nuisance aquatic vegetation in U.S. Army Corps of Engineer (USACE) 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 hydrology, are discussed. The selection and calibration of herbicide application equipment, for use with liquid and granular formulations, is examined.
