Abstract/Contents:Provides a guideline for integrated pest management (IPM) scouting, advising sports turf managers to: map the site to be scouted; inventory plant species; record abiotic and biotic-triggered plant abnormalities; generate a statement concerning the overall condition of the field; and recall that many insect species may be beneficial to the turf and surrounding ecosystem. Includes a list of "essential tools you will need for IPM investigation." Concludes that "skilled IPM practitioners who scout properly and follow their program protocols face fewer plant healthcare problems and manage their sites safely, cost effectively and with fewer inputs."
