A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

It is the goal of the IPM program to reduce the use of chemicals in the landscape while maintaining a healthy and aesthetically pleasing landscape. We use an action threshold for herbicide, insecticide and fungicide use. Part of the program also involves soil testing for needed fertilization, planting appropriate turf varieties to minimize susceptibility to disease and we are also looking into drought tolerant varieties of turf to reduce water use.

The website URL where information about the IPM plan(s) is available:

Concordia uses Integrated Pest Management to some degree on all 79.5 acres of landscape and turf, but less so with the athletic fields, which account for approximately 45 acres; that leaves about 34.5 under the IPM program.
