Oasis Aquatic Herbicide, A Selective Systemic Herbicide for Management of Aquatic Vegetation
Oasis Aquatic Herbicide, a selective systemic herbicide for management of aquatic vegetation in ponds, lakes, reservoirs, marshes, wetlands, bayous, drainage ditches, canals, and slow-moving or quiescent bodies of water including vegetation control on shoreline and riparian areas within or adjacent to these and other aquatic sites.
Oasis Aquatic Herbicide may be applied directly into water or sprayed onto foliage of plants or exposed sediment after drawdown. Depending upon method of application and target plant, Oasis is absorbed by plants through leaves, from water through submersed plant shoots, or from soil or hydrosoil by roots. For in-water treatments, rapid water movement or any condition resulting in rapid dilution of Oasis in treated water will reduce its effectiveness.
Oasis Aquatic Herbicide, an HPPD-inhibitor, inhibits the formation of carotene in susceptible plants; in the absence of carotene, chlorophyll is rapidly degraded by sunlight. Following in-water application, Oasis herbicidal symptoms appear in 7 to 10 days on actively growing plants as white (chlorotic) or pink growing points. Depending on conditions, slow plant death occurs over a period of 60 to 120 days or longer. Level of control depends on timing of initial application, application rate or concentration, exposure period, and weed species. Species susceptibility to Oasis may vary depending upon time of year, stage of growth, and water movement. For best results, apply Oasis immediately after weeds begin active growth. Application to mature target plants may require higher application rates and longer exposure periods to achieve control.
