dc.description.abstractWith the support of the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program and the community of Cooperstown New York, the historic Doubleday Field has been managed during the 2012 baseball season with an emphasis on implementing alternatives to the use of conventional, synthetic pesticides. Established field management practices were closely examined and adjustments made as needed. New techniques, systems thinking, experimentation with new, reduced-risk products and the employment of biological controls were incorporated in a progressive sports field management program. Using advanced, high-level IPM, the desired standards of field playability and aesthetic quality were successfully maintained while pesticide risks were mitigated.
