Attaining sustainable turfgrass administration summarizes the wealth of current analysis that addresses these challenges, whereas additionally figuring out potential mitigation methods to cut back fertilizer use and water conservation. This assortment additionally highlights developments in breeding for improved cultivars of turfgrass with enhanced abiotic and biotic stress responses, in addition to local weather resilience.
In its in depth exploration of turfgrass physiology, breeding, and cultivation, the e book showcases how the turfgrass trade can undertake extra sustainable administration practices and scale back its environmental affect.
- Evaluations the affect of local weather change on the growing risk of biotic and abiotic stresses to the turfgrass trade, in addition to the problem of treating diseased turf within the face of fungicide resistance
- Considers the event of different, extra sustainable administration practices that utilise and/or optimise fewer agricultural outputs, corresponding to fertilizers, pesticides and gas to energy agricultural equipment
- Gives a collection of case research that element the institution of excellent turfgrass administration and upkeep in a wide range of environments (golf programs, athletic fields, sports activities pitches, arid environments)
“Though quite a few publications can be found on turfgrass science and administration, few are targeted on environmental points and sustainability corresponding to this new e book by Professor Fidanza. As the necessity for improved sustainability turns into more and more vital within the turfgrass trade, practitioners and academicians want up-to-date science-based info on efficient measures to cope with stress components induced by local weather change, in addition to finest practices for optimizing using precious assets, together with, water, fertilizers and vitality. The e book’s inclusion of case research on unmanned plane, selection choice, wildflowers, pollinators and irrigation scheduling gives a singular and attention-grabbing overview of the methods through which the trade can undertake extra sustainable practices. This publication will undoubtedly develop into a typical reference for turfgrass scientists around the globe.” —Dr Peter Landschoot, Professor of Turfgrass Science and Director of Graduate Research in Agricultural and Environmental Plant Science, The Pennsylvania State College
