Abstract : A variety of treatment methods are available for aquatic plant management. To decide on the treatment method to use, information on the treatment effectiveness must be available. However, operational aquatic plant management personnel rarely collect this select type of information. As a result, aquatic plant management researchers must quantify and make available data that reflect this need. The Aquatic Plant Control Research Program (APCRP) of the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station is currently developing rapid and accurate field techniques to measure treatment effectiveness. These techniques have been used successfully in the field and are discussed as examples in this paper.
