Abstract/Contents:Describes the purpose and practices of the Turfgrass Integrated Pest Management (IPM) Program. The program "embodies the use of alternative approaches to lawn care, especially in keeping pests at acceptable levels." IPM emphasizes a common-sense approach. First the client's turf is analyzed for species, soil nutrient levels, soil compaction, pest problems (weeds, insects, and diseases) and thatch. Then modifications to mowing practices, fertilization, and irrigation practices are suggested. IPM's "long term effect should be a reduction in pesticide use with an improvement in the asthetics of the environment."
