The New Standard for Aquatic Weed Control in Canals

Research & Development

SePRO Corporation is a company focused on product stewardship and development. A core focus of SePRO’s aquatic research team is the development of new aquatic plant management tools and solutions. Over the past 10 years, SePRO has focused laboratory and field resources to bring new management solutions to the canal market. These efforts have resulted in solutions such as Sonar, Nautique and The New Standard Program for Canals.

Research and development efforts for the canal market continue with our scientists and aquatic specialists at the SePRO Research and Technology Campus in North Carolina and in the field. One of the products that have recently emerged from SePRO’s research and development efforts is Galleon.


Galleon* SC Aquatic Herbicide

In 2007, SePRO Corporation was granted registration of a new mode of action by the United States Environmental Protection Agency. Galleon SC represents an exciting new technology for management of a variety of submersed, floating and emergent invasive and nuisance aquatic plants. Galleon SC is classified as an EPA Reduced-Risk Aquatic Herbicide based on its use characteristics and toxicology. SePRO has been granted an Experimental Use Permit for application to dry or dewatered canals. SePRO is actively evaluating this product in the lab and field for potential use in irrigation canals. Stay tuned for future developments with Galleon SC and the many other compounds we are currently screening for use in canals.
