Perennials are of two types: the simple and the creeping. The former multiply only through seeds. They have no normal means of spreading vegetatively. However, if they are injured or cut, the severed portion produces new plants. Creeping perennials are spread by creeping A.

Some weeds propagate themselves by means of tubers which are modified rhizomes adapted for the storage of food.

Establish. Such a situation demands the use of dredging facilities to remove silt and increase the water capacity of lakes. This also reduces the problem of emergent weeds. Dredging essentially meant for desilting along shores also helps in removal of aquatic weed vegetation. 7 Mowing This process consists of cutting the weeds close to the ground with the help of manual or poweroperated mowing machines. Mowing is effective on tall growing plants. Repeated mowing not only prevents seed production of emergent weeds but may also starve the underground parts which store carbohydrate reserves and provide energy to vegetative reproductive organs.

In case of drying of waterbodies, most of them give their seeds and other vegetative reproductive organs in base ground lands. These weeds are observed in the surface of the large, deep and shallow depths of waterbodies; deep continuous flowing canals and continuously flowing rivers, large ponds, tanks, etc. Some of the weeds in this ecosystem freely float and move long distances, while some of them do float on the water surface but anchor down to soil at the bottom of the waterbody. These weed species make loss of water through evapotranspiration in addition to impediment caused in flow of water.
