Who was Mike Netherland?
Mike Netherland was a leader in aquatic plant research and technology, and his work was instrumental in the development of various-scale aquatic plant management programs in North America.
Mike is credited with being the first to use dye to track herbicide movement in lakes, reservoirs, and flowing systems, and he was also the first to suspect herbicide resistance occurring in aquatic plants. This body of knowledge serves as the foundation for the herbicide use patterns that are in use today.
