Incomplete degradation of control products and subsequent carryover of active ingredient to the next year are operational concerns for control agencies. Altosid XR briquets were weighed before and after 6-18 months of exposure in temporary wetlands to determine the rate of physical degradation of the briquets. Degradation rate was influenced mainly by the number of days a briquet remained under water. The average briquet degraded to 19% of its weight within 150 days of immersion and was… CONTINUE READING
