USGA Summary Points:The feasibility and performance of golf course turf managed with few or no chemical pesticides was assessed. Golf course putting greens were maintained under the unrestricted current standard pest management, IPM, or non-chemical pest management regimes. The current standard cultural practices were compared with alternative stress-reducing practices. IPM greens received 27-30% fewer pesticide applications than the unrestricted current standard pest management system. Five out of six IPM greens were of equal quality to those managed under the current unrestricted standard. All non-chemical greens were below acceptable quality from late August through October.
