Pond Management

Weed control in farm ponds is important to landowners each year. By following a 3-step program, one can eliminate the weeds in the pool, add a beautiful blue color to the pool and also eliminate the nutrients in the bottom of the pool that grow your moss.

Soil pH

Water clarity is influenced by the pH of the water. Water samples may be taken to the County Extension office to determine the pH of the water.  Pools that have an acid pH can be treated be treated with lime whereas water that is alkaline can be treated with gypsum. Rates to be used are based upon the jar test, which applies small amounts of the products that will clear the sample then calculating the amount needed to clear the pool.
