In its many forms, the turfgrass management industry has an estimated economic impact of $40 billion per year in the United States. Oftentimes, the more intensively that turfgrass is managed, the greater the risk or susceptibility to attacks from diseases, insects, weeds, and animals. This publication describes the pest management options available to professional turfgrass managers to keep turf in top condition while limiting potential harm to the environment (28 pages; 2018).
