Default Aquatic Application Strategies

Hey everyone i want to start applying aquatic herbicides to ponds and lakes and want to know the best idea in applying the herbicide. I have seen back pack sprayers, granular applicators, also tank sprayers. I will be using a 16 ft jon boat. Any suggestions please feel free to give them.

Thanks

That sounds like a very interesting niche! Good for you for experimenting with it.

Why not start cheap with a back pack style sprayer and see how it works, also see how the market is for this service. If you find there is more work to be done, then you could scale up as needed.

What got you to think about offering these services?

Who do you market this service too? Are there lake associations or something in your area you can send information too or is this something you have to provide through the state?

I'd start simple and scale up as needed. See how the business for this kind of work goes and then buy equipment as the service grows.
