About this book

This book places all pest management in turfgrass into a single volume and employs management as the major thrust of control. Development of cultural methods for control of individual pest, chemical control methods, and detailed descriptions of individual pests in each section are followed by extensive cultural management tips. Find out how to accurately diagnose the onset of infestation; how to identify pests and gain knowledge of their cycles, when and where they attack, and the damage thay leave in their wake; and how to control them using a plethora of detailed options. The book covers all cool and warm season grasses, and includes a 24-page, 4 colour section with over 100 detailed drawings and colour photographs of turfgrass insects.
