Abstract/Contents:"Identifying cost effective and environmentally sustainable turfgrass management strategies is imperative as the demands for resources rise and environmental standards are increased. Integrated Pest Management (IPM) principles were utilized to investigate four cool-season turfgrass management strategies, with a goal to evaluate and compare aesthetic quality, management cost, and contributions to air and water quality degradation. The management strategies included an organic program, two synthetic programs, an organic and synthetic combination program and a control with no inputs. Nitrous oxide measurements were collected in the field weekly and also for five consecutive days following fertilization events by employing a photoacoustic field gas-analyzer and a vented static collection chamber. Root zone leachate was collected from a depth of 36 cm with lysimeters equipped with low tension wick collection system. A Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) method was used every other week to assess a turfgrass color index. Turf and weed cover were assessed three times during each growing season (May, July, and September). Monetary costs were compared. Preliminary data analyses indicate significant difference existed between the control and other treatments for turf and weed cover, although NDVI values were equal among all treatments. The results of this study will be an important contribution to the scientific literature in a growing trend of regulation, standardization and/or restriction on fertilizer use."
