Farm pond maintenance

This farm pond has a spring water supply and is shaded to one side by trees.  Duckweed becomes established in late spring due to the high nutrient loading in the water supply.  The floating weed has to be periodically skimmed off the pond’s surface, as it can choke the other water plants in the pond and also seriously reduces light penetration.  .
