John Wiley & Sons, May 22, 2003 - Architecture - 375 pages
So you're ready to spread some fertilizer or perhaps spray some pesticide. Are you using the right chemical for the job? Are you using it in the right way? Are you breaking any environmental regulations? The knowledge level required of turf and agricultural managers when applying chemicals to a variety of sites today is constantly rising. But this book can help you meet the challenge. Written in non-technical language for the practicing manager, it conveys a basic understanding and working knowledge of fundamental chemical properties that relate to daily turfgrass and agricultural management. It gives you the practical knowledge you need to successfully and safely tackle the problem at hand. Complete, up-to-date information provided by two experts in the field cover the subject from A to Z, including new products, regulations, and management techniques.
