Minnesota Using Potash to Eradicate Zebra Mussels

ABC News reported that the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is using potash for the first time to kill the zebra and quagga mussels. To achieve this, the department will inject liquid potash under the ice of Christmas Lake.

As quoted in the market news:

The agency said this is the first time potash has been used for this purpose in Minnesota and only the third time in the U.S., Abc News reported.

Zebra mussels reproduce quickly and can disrupt the food chain, clog water pipes and create algae.

The technique has been successfully applied in Canada, with the province of Manitoba becoming the first one to use liquid potash in a lake environment this year.
