Monoecious Hydrilla Biology and Management

Monoecious hydrilla is one of the two hydrilla biotypes found in the U.S. First confirmed in North Carolina in 1980, it has spread across the state and infests many water bodies. We conduct research to improve knowledge of hydrilla biology, increase survey efficiency in detecting hydrilla, and improve hydrilla management programs. Our extension efforts assist managers with detecting, quantifying, and managing this invasive plant.
