Phragmyte Control #387697

Asked March 06, 2017, 4:13 PM EST

I have a small marsh and have been trying to eradicate phragmytes. I learned from the Poplar Island staff that they have had some success using glyphosate to control them. Could you please let me know when and how to apply glyphosate to the marsh to try to kill the phrags. I have included two photos of the marsh, which is about the size of a baseball infield. Thank you
