Abstract/Contents:Discusses the possibility of "growing turf to sequester carbon...[and acquire] both environmental and economic benefits." Includes studies conducted regarding the potential benefit of carbon sequestration. Indicates various ways to promote carbon sequestration, such as "limiting pesticide applications, lowering annual nitrogen rates...and using organic fertilizers." Suggests that "turf managers can tailor their plans to make turf even more effective at capturing carbon," adding that "not only is it the right thing to do for the environment, but it may help with the budget too."
