Diquat or Reward can provide effect chemical control for both southern naiad or pondweed. The active ingredient for these herbicides is diquat dibromide. The herbicides are formulated as liquids and are applied directly to the pond surface to control submerged weeds. Keep in mind that diquate dibromide will quickly bond to suspended soil particles, and therefore should not be used in muddy waters.
