Application equipment is calibrated to deliver a known concentration of herbicide as the boat makes numerous passes within the treatment area. For emergent plant control, the use recommendations are very similar to those for terrestrial agriculture. A typical emergent application will be in the range of 1 quart to 2 gallons of product per acre, and the objective is for the vast majority of the herbicide to fall on the emerged portions of the plant. Inevitably a small amount of herbicide will hit the water instead of the plants, and this is why certain herbicides such as glyphosate and imazapyr, which are for emergent plant control only, are specially labeled for either aquatic or terrestrial use. Only herbicide preparations with an aquatic label will be effective when used on aquatic plants. Residues of emergent-plant-control herbicides in the water are in very low concentrations that will not typically impact submersed vegetation.
While most plant grow on land, many others can grow in the water
Plants living beneath the surface of a pond oxygenate it, allowing animals like fish to live in the water. Submerged plants have roots, but the plants only use them to stay anchored. Thus, for a water garden you can pot submerged plants in soil, sand or gravel. Some kinds of submerged plants try to take over ponds, especially earthen ponds. Choose carefully. water milfoil, with a lot of foliage, Vallisneria, a large grassy plant, and dwarf Sagittaria, a small, grassy specimen, are all submerged plants.

Our state is home to hundreds of native aquatic and wetland plants that live in damp to wet soils, and some even more specialized plants that live entirely in, on, or under water; submersed plants, emersed plants (including grasses, sedges and rushes), and floating and floating-leaved plants. These plants are technically referred to as aquatic macrophytes.

PLANTS: Plants and algae are important to freshwater biomes because they provide oxygen through photosynthesis, and food for animals in this biome. Yum, delicious algae. In fact, that slimy scum you see on the surface of a pond or lake is lunch for many of your favorite aquatic animals, like turtles. In fast streams and rivers many plants have special structures that keep them from being carried away by the water. Some aquatic plants have strong roots that keep them anchored securely, while others have stems that bend easily with the movement of the water. Certain mosses are able to cling to rocks. Plants who live in still waters have different adaptations. Water lilies, algae, and duckweed float on the surface. Cattails and reeds grow along the shoreline of many freshwater ecosystems. house plant life with the unique adaptation of being able to survive in fresh and salty environments. Mangroves and pickleweed are just some examples of estuarine plants.All living organisms need food. The basic difference between plants and animals is that plants make their own food, while animals obtain food from their environment. Through photosynthesis, plants manufacture organic materials (food) from inorganic materials (water, carbon dioxide, and nutrients) using sunlight as their source of energy. Because plants make their own food, they are called producers. Animals are known as consumers. They gather and consume organic material rather than making it themselves. Herbivores are animals that eat plants; carnivores are animals that eat meat. Omnivores are animals that eat both plants and other animals. Scavengers eat all the leftovers and other dead organisms. No matter what an animal eats, all of its food can be traced back to the ability of plants to produce organic materials from the sun.
