Abstract/Contents:"We live in interesting times when the truth and public perception on environmental issues are shaped more by the media and special intrest than science and reason. Turfgrass scientists need to look beyond the fairway and understand how the plant species we work with fit in sustainable, urban landscapes. This paper summarizes past environmental research focused on the fate of pesticides and fertilizers applied to turfgrasses; water quality and quantity issues; and efforts to address public concerns about amenity and recreational turfgrass. In general, the research shows that under most conditions, the small amounts of pesticides and nutrients that move through the soil are found at levels below the health and safety standards established by the U. S. Environmental Protection Agency. The important components affecting the fate of pesticides and nutrients are a) the filtering properties of the canopy and thatch; b) soil texture; and c) solubility and absorption properties of the product applied. The paper also looks forward into the future and describes the problems that will face the turfgrass industry and the research needed to address these problems."
