Abstract/Contents:Discusses the use of entomogenous nematodes in turf IPM systems and the impact of environment and integration of chemical controls with the nematodes. Cites that "the use of entomogenous nematodes, although promising, requires additional research before it can be recommended without qualification" and "the use of nematodes appears most promising when integrated into a management system where total suppression is not required from one agent or for situations when use of synthetic insecticides is not possible or desired." Also suggests "if nematodes are to be used as part of an [a] management program for soil insects attacking turf and ornamental crops it will be necessary to integrate their use with that of pesticides used to control other insects, nematodes, weeds and plant pathogens on these crops."
