Commercial Handbook Available
The 2010 Illinois Commercial Landscape and Turfgrass Pest Management Handbook is available. This publication provides management recommendations for diseases, weeds, and insect pests associated with trees, shrubs, turf, and flowers for professionals including arborists, turf care professionals, landscapers, golf course personnel, nurserymen, and garden center operators. We strive to provide recommendations that are effective, based on research results, feedback from professionals, and our understanding of the biology of the pests and pesticide mode-of-action.
New handbooks are produced every 2-3 years, with the previous one being published in 2007. This handbook is priced similar to its predecessor at $16.50 plus shipping and handling through the University of Illinois pubsplus website. This link will direct you directly to this publication. The handbook is also available at local extension offices, pesticide applicator training clinics, and other extension activities. The price at these locations is likely to reflect the cost of shipping and handling incurred.--Phil Nixon
