I want to eliminate weeds around a lagoon which does not have anything live in it, but I use the dirty water to irrigate my crops, could that contaminate the water and possibly damage my crop? Here is also windy, could strong winds carrying out applied soil particles damage crops?
You should not apply Pramitol 25E around any wells or cisterns as it could contaminate ground or drinking water. Pramitol is very persistent, so you should never use or spray it anywhere near desirable plants or cropt. To treat around water that you will use to irrigate crops, you will need to use herbicides labeled for this application. You could use a non-selective aquatic herbicide such as Rodeo Herbicide which is safe for use around drainage ditches, and there is no restriction on the use of treated water for irrigation, recreation, or domestic purposes. Be sure you use an aquatic approved surfactant when using Rodeo, such as DyneAmic Surfactant.
