In mid summer of 2019, the Washington Department of Ecology added Procellacor herbicide to our state’s permit and to date the results have been stunning. We have delivered close to 100 percent control in all cases where we have applied it.
Procellacor is a product that was registered by the US EPA as a reduced risk herbicide. It can be applied to lakes, rivers and reservoirs without any restriction on the use of treated water for Potable Supply, Swimming, Fishing or irrigating turf grass (there are short irrigation restrictions for some ornamental species). It also has the fastest plant accumulation factor or uptake of any aquatic herbicide we have in the tool box.
In our region the primary invasive aquatic weeds we fight is Eurasian Milfoil or hybrid strains of that species. Procellacor is becoming our go to technology for combating this plant. Procellacor is selective for milfoils, it is systemic and will control the entire plant and it provides long term control.
In conjunction with SePRO Corporation Procellacor can come with a three year warranty and payment program as well so you have the opportunity to do more work in year one and stretch payments over three seasons.
Procellacor is available through Pro Certified Applicators such as our team. For more information on this product and the Pro Certification Process, you may visit https://sepro.com/aquatics/procellacor-applicators
