Abstract/Contents:Discusses an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program in Oshawa, Canada, which incorporates "use of biological controls, a reduction in the frequency of grass mowing, an increase in cultural turf improvement programs and a reduction in the pesticide application schedule." Lists Oshawa's eight IPM elements, including "Integrated Pest Management procedures"; "alternative landscape treatments"; and "expanded education and outreach programs." States that "the plan has teeth too, in the form of funding." Discusses potential "problems and tools of change," stating that "users were not willing to change their ways and stay off fields when required." Also discusses the public response, which "ranged from one extreme to another."
