Why use an adjuvant for aquatic weed control?
Adjuvants must not normally be used with Roundup ProActive in aquatic areas, but for floating weeds where wash-off can be a potential problem the addition of TopFilm, (a natural biosponge called Biocar made from maize) may improve control of species where herbicide wash-off is a problem, e.g. hydrocotyle ranunculoides (floating pennywort), myriophyllum aquaticum, (parrot's feather), potamogeton natans, (broad leaved pondweed), reeds and rushes, nymphoides peltata (fringed water lily).
