Nautique Aquatic Herbicide
For control of floating, emersed, and submersed vegetation in still or flowing aquatic sites such as potable water sources, lakes, rivers, reservoirs, and ponds, slow-flowing or quiescent water bodies, crop and non-crop irrigation systems (canals, laterals, and ditches), fish, golf course, ornamental, swimming, and fire ponds and aquaculture including fish and shrimp.
Nautique is a fast-acting, economical contact pond herbicide that provides localized pondweed control with no water use or irrigation restrictions. Nautique will control all vegetation that it is sprayed over the top of and onto.
How Nautique Works
Nautique is a fast-acting, economical herbicide that provides localized control of nuisance and exotic plants with no use or irrigation restrictions. This copper-based herbicide works on contact for spot and local treatment of tough weeds like hydrilla, egeria and southern naiad. Nautique is formulated with 9% chelated copper and is the most concentrated chelated copper herbicide available. It may be used in lakes, rivers, reservoirs, ponds, potable water sources, crop and non-crop irrigation systems (ditches, canals and laterals), fish, golf course, ornamental, swimming and fire ponds and aquaculture including fish and shrimp.
The mode-of-action is uptake through plant cells where the copper ion inhibits plant photosynthesis providing a fast-acting result.
How To Apply Nautique
Nautique Aquatic Herbicide provides effective control of hydrilla, egeria, southern naiad, horned pondweed, and widgeon grass in lakes, rivers, ponds, reservoirs, potable water sources, crop and non-crop irrigation systems (ditches, canals and laterals), fish, golf course, ornamental, swimming and fire ponds, and aquaculture including fish and shrimp. This product rapidly penetrates into the plant tissues. Proper application of this contact product is, therefore, important.
Nautique can be applied directly to actively growing plants as a surface spray or subsurface by holding the spray nozzle under water. For surface or subsurface application, this product may be applied diluted or undiluted, whichever is most suitable to insure uniform coverage of the area to be treated. The activity of this product may be reduced if there is insufficient penetration of light into the water or if plants are covered with silt, scale or algae.
Aquatic plants will usually drop below the surface within 4-7 days after treatment. The complete results of treatment will be observed in 3-4 weeks in most cases. In heavily infested areas a second application may be necessary after 10-12 weeks. Repeating application of this product too soon after initial application may have no effect.
Use the lower rates for treating shallow water and the higher rates for treating deeper water and heavier infestation. Surface applications may be made from shore into shallow water along the shoreline. Nautique may be applied directly or tank mixed with water. For subsurface plants, applications should be made below the water surface by holding the spray nozzle below the surface of the water.
Nautique is an effective copper based aquatic herbicide that is used to control hydrilla, naiads, brazilian elodea, widgeon grass, milfoil, sago pondweed, and horned pondweed. Nautique aquatic herbicide may be used in lakes, ponds, potable water reservoirs, ornamental ponds, golf course water hazards, fire ponds, and industrial retention basins. Water may be used immediately after treatment for swimming, fishing, livestock watering, and irrigation. Application rates range from 1.8 to 3.0 gallons per acre foot of water treated.
