Abstract

Turfgrass is a uniform stand or mixture of grass maintained at a relatively low height and used for recreational or functional purposes. Following comments on the turfgrass system, discussion centres on arthropod pests of turfgrass soil and of turfgrass leaves and stems, and on the current status of integrated pest management. Only a small number of specific, alternative control methods are available for turfgrass insects, and these are often more slow-acting, less reliable or more difficult to use than conventional insecticides. -P.J.Jarvis
