Reliability of Early Detection of Dreissena spp. Larvae by Cross Polarized Light Microscopy, Image Flow Cytometry, and Polymerase Chain Reaction Assays Results of a Community Double-Blind Round Robin Study (Round Robin Study Phase II)
“An Adaptive and Prescriptive Management Approach to Aquatic Plant Control”
On October 28, 2009, the US Army Engineer Research and Development Center, Environmental Laboratory (ERDC-EL), and Clean Lakes, Inc. entered into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement for the “Research and Testing of a System for Precision Littoral Zone Application of Aquatic Herbicides”. The Scope of the Cooperative Research and Development Program is to provide for the joint conduct of research and development investigations related to coupling the LittLine® System (Littoral Zone Treatment Technology) with ERDC-EL Hydroacoustic Submersed Plant Mapping capabilities (SAVEWS™ and related developments). The technologies will be used together to achieve precision application of herbicide to submerged, nuisance aquatic vegetation.
