Aquashade® Aquatic Plant Growth Control
This is more than a colorant. It is a precise
blend of blue and yellow dyes that shade specific portions of the sunlight
spectrum (red-orange and blue-violet) required by underwater aquatic plant and
algae growth. This shading inhibits photosynthesis in young bottom growth
and may prevent development altogether if the color is maintained throughout
the early season.
Primarily effective in water deeper than two feet;
floating plants such as lilies are unaffected by this product if they have
already reached the surface.
Use in conjunction with herbicides or algaecides
for control of surface algae mats or shallow-water plants.
Not for use in drinking water. No restrictions for
animal/livestock drinking, irrigation, swimming or fish consumption when used at
