Turfgrass Problems: Picture Clues and Management Options (NRAES 125 - FRONT MATTER ONLY)
Gussack, E.; Rossi, F. S.
Insects, diseases, weeds, and other problems can wreak havoc on turfgrass. This pocket-guide describes 80 cool-season turfgrass problems, including damage, diseases, insects, and weeds. Each description includes color photos (130 total), conditions under which it tends to occur, and nonchemical management strategies. It also contains a glossary. Three symptom timelines help to determine a problem’s cause by indicating when diseases, insects, and weeds are most likely to cause problems. It will be useful to homeowners, IPM specialists, lawn care professionals, golf course superintendents, groundskeepers, agronomists, park managers, extension educators, and students. DUE TO OUSTANDING COPYRIGHT ISSUES OR CLEARLY IDENTIFIED OUT-OF-DATE PRACTICES (E.G. SAFETY CONCERNS), ONLY THE FRONT MATTER (E.G. COVER, ToC, ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS, ETC) ARE PROVIDED HERE AT THIS TIME.
