GCEP pest management survey results released
Results from GCSAA’s second Pest Management Practices Survey show that superintendents reduced their reliance on pesticides since the first survey results in 2007. In turn, courses have increased their reliance on non-pesticide pest control practices such as cultural control, plant growth regulators and biological control. The survey is part of the Golf Course Environmental Profile, conducted by GCSAA through the EIFG and funded by the USGA.
