Project Leaders: J. Grant, D. Marvin, NYS IPM Program

Cooperators: J. Carroll , C. TenEyck, NYS IPM Program

Abstract: We are developing TracTurf—user-friendly software, specifically designed for the sod growers in New York State to record pest management and fertilization practices. This Excel-based software program, will make record-keeping and reporting for government agencies easier, improve the accuracy and consistency of pest management records, and promote the practice of IPM. A companion user’s manual is also being developed. Both will be available for distribution on CD. This work is funded by the NYS IPM Program. Funding from the New York State Turfgrass Association is allowing for simultaneous development of TracTurf for lawn care, golf courses and parks.
