Abstract/Contents:Presents a study conducted to "demonstrate that golf course turf is providing less harmful inputs to the environment than the most common crops, and that golf courses turf can have the opportunity to reduce further its actual water consumption." Compares water consumption and chemical input of turfgrasses to water consumption and chemical input of crops in the Po Valley in Italy. Concludes that "the presence of golf courses instead of the most common crops of the area can provide with postive influence in terms of local water, fertilisers [fertilizers] and pesticides reduction."
