Since 1989, Aqua-Ag Ltd has provided innovative and effective solutions to difficult aquatic weed problems. Projects range in scope from small private ponds to lakes, rivers, estuaries and mudflats.
Aqua-Ag utilises specially designed spray-craft for the control of submerged weeds in waterways.
Aqua-Ag now owns and operates several watercraft including:
● Two flat hull airboats

In addition we utilise numerous spray pumping and granual application systems. The airboats are fitted with Garmin Sounder, Tee Jet GPS and Tee Jet Flowmeter.
