Phragmites Treatment Herbicide Quick Guide

The Non-native Phragmites Herbicide Quick Guide (updated July 2, 2015) provides an easy reference sheet for mixing the correct quantities of herbicide for non-native Phragmites management. This one-page (double-sided) guide can be printed and left in work trucks or with mixing equipment. It will be updated as new research improves management best practices.

The Great Lakes states and provinces have many regulations and standards for herbicide and pesticide treatments that can be explored in detail on the websites below. Please contact your state or provincial agencies for more information. If you know of additional or updated resources, please email phragmites@glc.org.

The necessity for a permit may depend on many factors including proximity to standing water, wetlands and Great Lakes shoreline. The links below will help you determine which permits, if any, are necessary for your site.
