Aquatic plants serve a variety of uses in a water system, some of which are vital to the overall health of the aquatic environment. There are numerous aquatic plants that grow in farm dams, streams and waterways and fortunately most are rarely a problem. However, when water becomes rich in nutrients aquatic plants can grow vigorously to a point where they become a nuisance or are considered a weed.

 

Aquatic weeds become a problem when they:

  • Blanket the entire water surface, causing oxygen depletion
  • Introduced species compete with native species and reduce biodiversity and impact on aquatic habitat
  • Increase transpiration rates.
  • Interfere with commercial and recreational activities
