The variations ash content of the aquatic plants is related to each one's ability to store minerals according to their aquatic environment (Frikha et al., 2011), though this may also be due to the association between cations and polysaccharides (Chasquibol et al., 2003; Frikha et al., 2011).
In conclusion, EPA describes that there are "no risks of concern to human health from any route of exposure" and ProcellaCOR "may provide a better alternative to older chemistries that require higher levels of risk mitigation practices in order to reduce exposure." With an excellent environmental profile, EPA describes "no risk concerns for non-target wildlife." With low use rates due to unprecedented activity on major invasive aquatic plants, ProcellaCOR will reduce needed herbicide rates by orders of magnitude versus alternate, older technologies.
The identification of aquatic plant species is difficult because of interspecific hybridization and cryptic species that are reproductively isolated but have no distinguishing morphological criteria.
