Cooperator: W. Parken, Pesticide Management & Education Program, Cornell University

Abstract: We are developing TracTurf—user-friendly software, specifically designed for professional turfgrass managers in New York State to record, organize and report pest management and fertilization practices. It will consist of 4 programs, TurfLawn, TurfGrounds, TurfGolf and TurfSod. 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 resource will guide users. Both will be available for distribution on CD in 2008. This work is funded by the New York State Turfgrass Association and the New York State IPM Program.
