Abstract/Contents:Discusses Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in relation to risk management, a topic at the Gwinnett County (Georgia) Civic and Cultural Center annual Turfgrass Institute and Trade Show in December of 2005. States that there was an incident "in Peachtree City two years ago when a young girl's parents thought her allergic reaction that sent her to the hospital was caused by pesticides [used on soccer fields]." Explains the relation of this incident to IPM as risk management. States that "an effective IPM program establishes thresholds that set limits on the level that risk stakeholders are willing to accept before applying pesticides." Also states that "the audience could see that, if misused or overused, pesticides could present a risk, but if properly applied and controlled, that the risk was no more risky... than driving a car."
