Abstract/Contents:Presents a survey "to determine the current status of IPM in this industry in our area." Results include that "Pest management services for turf were provided by 49% of the survey respondents. Similar services for ornamentals were offered by 48% of those companies responding to the survey. Survey questions revealed that slightly less than one third of respondents already offer an explicit IPM option...Respondents rated lawn and turf pests from most to least problematic as weeds, diseases, insects, and nematodes, with weeds far exceeding any other pest problem...Several factors that limit the use of IPM in a commercial setting were identified including: 1) lack of information about pest biology, 2) alternatives to traditional chemicals are either not available, too costly, or are not consistently effective and 3) IPM practices are too time consuming or not well received by clients."
