Vegetation Management (ProVM), provides aquatic and terrestrial
weed control with minimal irrigation restrictions.
Clearcast is highly selective – controlling target weeds, leaving
desirables unaffected, making it ideal for aquatic areas used for fishing
and other recreation activities.
• Still and quiescent waters with an average depth of four (4) or more feet receiving a foliar application of Clearcast (≤ 2 quarts per acre) to emergent/floating vegetation may be used for irrigation on allowable sites 24 hours after application is completed.
• There are no irrigation restrictions on allowable sites for the use of treated water from flowing waters, such as irrigation canals with an average depth of four (4) or more feet, receiving a foliar application of Clearcast (≤ 2 quarts per acre) to emergent/floating vegetation.
• DO NOT use any Clearcast-treated waters from still or quiescent sources for irrigation purposes less than 24 hours after Clearcast application is completed.
• Waters receiving Clearcast either as a water treatment or as a foliar treatment on emergent/floating plants may be used for irrigation as long as concentrations are ≤ 50 ppb.
