For Aquatic Vegetation Control
In the Finger Lakes Region, tourism is one of the leading economic industries for the community. The harvester manages aquatic plant growth for the overall protection and enhancement of our waterways. This machinery is utilized to reduce the amount of invasive plants clogging the waterways throughout the County. One example of a nuisance plant is Eurasian Watermilfoil (Myrophyllum spicatum. L). This foreign plant species has no natural controls and grows in extremely dense stands, thus resulting in severely threatened natural lake environments. The growth is enhanced by the addition of sediments, and nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus. The growth of nuisance plants discourages swimming, boating, fishing and other recreational activities.
