Integrated Pest Management R&D Programme

New regulations at national, and international levels related to the turfgrass industry are becoming more demanding. A good example is the EU Directive on sustainable use of pesticides including strategies for integrated pest management. STERF together with the Nordic park and golf sector, universities, research institutions and authorities takes responsibility for ensuring that R&D activities that are important for integrated pest management (IPM) are coordinated and executed and that new knowledge is delivered.
