Being a licenced aquatic applicator, i have often questioned if aquatic herbicides are detrimental to the beneficial bacteria we try to build to manage decomposing vegetation in a pond. Are there studies to clarify my question? I view the use of copper sulfate as old school, my question is directed toward the newer products on the market today. Thank you in advance John
