Bulrush (Scirpus spp) is a common emergent plant found throughout the United States. Found in marshes and shallow shorelines. Stems are long and thin shaped triangular or round. Cluster of browinish flowers and seeds are located at the end of the stem. Bulrush provides excellent fish habitat and helps stabilize shoreline sediments. When Bulrush growth inhibits lake access we recommend the following solutions.
Navigate herbicide is an excellent choice. Its granular formulation is easy to apply. Apply at a rate of 150 Lbs to 200 Lbs per acre. A 50 foot by 50 foot area would require a maximum of twelve (12) pounds. For Bulrush the next best method is the application of a herbicide with the active ingredient called glyphosate found in brands like Rodeo™ and Shore-Klear™. Rodeo herbicide is applied directly onto the dry emergent portion of the plant. Make sure to use a surfactant with Rodeo or Shore-klear
Cutting can also be effective in small areas. See water weed cutter.
