Contents Notes
Problems encountered in controlling pests with chemical toxicants -- Benefits of an integrated pest management approach to turfgrass and ornamentals -- Current research towards understanding the pest and the site -- State of the art research on control of turfgrass pests through use of naturally occurring endophytic fungi -- State of the art research on use of entomophilic nematodes for control of turfgrass insects -- Manual of current practices for control of turfgrass diseases, insects and poa annua -- Evaluation of the site/pest complex: a starting point for development of an urban pest management system for turfgrass. Abstract: This EPA manual discusses insect resistance, regulatory, environmental and societal problems in controlling turfgrass and ornamental pests with pesticides and the benefits of an integrated pest management approach. It presents research on understanding the pest/site complex and biological turfgrass pest control by endophytic fungi and entomophilic nematodes. Current disease, insect and weed control practices are covered as well as developing IPM programs.
