Abstract/Contents:Discusse Integrated Pest Management (IPM) programs. States that IPM "is the integration of knowledge and cultural-management systems designed to improve the long-term health of turfgrass (and other crops) through the suppression of problem pests." State that "common IPM techniques include": "1) use of unbiased information"; "2) quality monitoring"; "3) anticipation of pest-population increases"; 4) use of naturally occuring biological controls"; 5) adoption of cultural-management practices"; and "6) carefully selected application of pesticide after monitoring and established thresholds have been met." Concludes that "by understanding these basic rules, it's not difficult to start an IPM program. Begin with one plant type, such as turfgrass, and then move to another."
