A brief description of the IPM plan(s) :

The most common turf and lawn pest problem on the UCB is weed invasion; and primarily dandelions and other broad leaf “weeds”. True IPM is a powerful approach that anticipates and prevents most problems through proper cultural practices and careful observation and knowledge of the life cycles of both beneficial and pest organisms.
