Abstract/Contents:Profiles integrated pest management (IPM), stating that "[firstly,] IPM attempts to reduce the risk that pest control strategies may have on the environment and people by incorporating all suitable techniques to maintain pests within acceptable limits...Secondly, IPM does not entail the elimination of pesticide use." Explains that though an IPM program may seem unrealistic for sports fields due to their heavy usage, "if implemented properly, IPM methods can potentially enhance turfgrass quality and improve sports turf playability." Discusses in detail the roles that scouting, monitoring, and record keeping play in an IPM program, and details the effect that various aspects of mowing may have on the turf stand.
