This program on all things algae and cyanobacteria.
We will cover how to identify the main groups of algae, from micro to macro forms, as well as, cyanobacteria and other harmful algal blooms. Once identified, we will briefly discuss their biology and how that plays a role in the pond’s ecosystem and management. Specific management strategies, including mechanical, biological, and chemical options, when applicable, will be covered for each grouping. Finally, we will discuss the importance of correctly calculating copper by using the label for effective control and treatment timing.
