Abstract/Contents:"Due to increased regulation and lack of data on herbicide use for turfgrass, a survey of homeowners, institutional grounds, and sod producers was initiated in 1978. Two survey forms were developed. The one for homeowners was designed with the premise that they are nonprofessional turfgrass growers. The second was developed for sod producers and commercial institutions assuming greater familiarity with herbicide products. Data requested would enable assessment of land area in turfgrass and percent treated with specific herbicide products in a specific manner. Responses to the surveys were lower than anticipated but the forms were generally well answered. Initial results indicate over 1 million acres in turfgrass in Michigan excluding ditches and roadbanks. Approximately one-third of this area was treated with at least one broadcast application of herbicides. 2,4-D and silvex were the most common herbicides used. The main problems which developed in the survey were computer down time and manpower."
