  • No evidence was captured on the use of environmental control of water primrose using shading, altered flow, altered rooting depth, or dredging.

'No evidence' for an action means we have not yet found any studies that directly and quantitatively tested this action during our systematic journal and report searches. Therefore we have been unable to assess whether or not the action is effective or has any harmful impacts. Please get in touch if you know of such a study for this action.
