Abstract/Contents:Presents a study to evaluate "the practicality and feasibility of both reduced and non-chemical management of greens." Discusses the goal of comparing the experiment to the demands of golfers. Describes the Integrated Pest Management (IPM) process and specific holes at the Bethpage Green Course. Results include that the "Dollar Spot was the most difficult pest to control... IPM treatments performed very well... Eco Guard, Allude, Endorse and Conserve were added to the arsenal to combat an increasing pest pressure level... The use of self-mixing sprayer was very useful in combating the many diseases encountered" on the golf greens. Concludes that "... a completely non-chemical approach to green management was unrealistic. The resulting turf quality impacted business with a marked decline in rounds of golf, despite ample communication during the study." Stresses that without quality greens, your business will suffer.
