Tough. Fast. Gone.



Clipper® delivers fast and selective control of tough invasive and nuisance plants such as cabomba, watermeal, Eurasian watermilfoil, water lettuce, duckweed, giant salvinia and more. Plus, Clipper dissipates quickly from the water column and does not accumulate in sediment. And, Clipper offers reduced PPE requirements with 51% WDG formulation for easier application and handling.


CLIPPER DELIVERS UNBEATABLE AQUATIC WEED CONTROL
  • Fast and selective control of tough invasive and nuisance plants
  • Dissipates quickly from the water column and does not accumulate in sediment, giving it a favorable environmental profile
  • 51% WDG means reduced personal protective equipment (PPE) requirements for ease of application, transport, and handling

APPLICATION RECOMMENDATIONS
Clipper® is a contact herbicide that quickly degrades in water. Good coverage and contact time is essential. Make applications with sufficient volume of water according to the label. When making applications to floating or emergent weeds, apply at 6 to 12 oz per acre and mix with an adjuvant approved for aquatic sites. For subsurface applications apply Clipper at 200 to 400 ppb in the water column. Please see label for information on the effects of high pH on plant response and efficacy.

PRECAUTIONS AND RESTRICTIONS
No restrictions for swimming, drinking, or fishing.

DO NOT apply to intertidal or estuarine areas.

In areas with dense weed vegetation only treat 1/2 the water body at one time and wait 10-14 days before treating the remaining area. DO NOT re-treat the same section of water within 28 days of application.

Treated water may not be used for irrigation purposes on food crops until at least five days after application.

Treated water may be used for irrigation purposes on turf and landscape ornamentals as outlined in the Irrigation Restrictions Following Application table below.

DO NOT use in water utilized for crawfish farming.

DO NOT re-treat the same section of water with Clipper more than 6 times per year.

DO NOT exceed 400 ppb of Clipper during any one application.
