    ProcellaCOR: Game-changing technology for aquatic plant management

    Dr. Mark Heilman, SePRO and Dr. Kurt Getsinger, ERDC Environmental Laboratory
    25 April 2018

    • Bio Dr. Mark Heilman, SePRO and Dr. Kurt Getsinger, ERDC Environmental Laboratory

      ProcellaCOR is a new, advanced tool for selective, systemic control of major invasive aquatic weeds including hydrilla, Eurasian and hybrid watermilfoils, crested floating heart, water hyacinth, and many more. ProcellaCOR's approval marks a number of major firsts for the management of exotic and nuisance aquatic vegetation:

    • The first brand-new herbicide active to receive approval of aquatic use in its initial USEPA registration in 32 years (Sonar(r) being the last);
    • The only short-exposure, systemic herbicide mode of action for hydrilla;
    • The first US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Reduced Risk designation for a short-exposure herbicide for spot and partial in-water treatments of submersed weeds;
    • The first non-copper herbicide for localized treatments without any restriction on human potable water consumption following application.

      Additionally, learn about ERDC's review of recent studies using ProcellaCOR and ERDC's role in the USEPA registration process of the herbicide.
