Friday Feature: Remote Control Boat for Pond Herbicide Application

This week’s featured video highlights an innovation for managing pond weeds.  Lake Restoration Incorporated has developed a remote control, miniature air-boat for applying pond herbicides.  Spraying weeds can be a real challenge for pond owners, but this product could make aquatic herbicide application fun.  The TORMADA application boat will hold one gallon of concentrated chelated copper for treating algae, or a gallon of diquat for treating submerged weeds.  Drive the boat in the area of pond with problem weeds, and the herbicide is slowly added to the water.
