Planned Grounds Maintenance Schedule for
Pesticide use on Turf and Ornamentals
Marcus Sherburne
Grounds Manager
Changes for 2011
• In continuing in our effort to reduce pesticide usage on campus we
are going to be using roughly half as much Roundup for 2011 as we
did in 2010, we hope to achieve this by incorporating an organic
herbicide as Roundup primary replacement. For 2011 I have chosen
Burnout II as it worked better in our trials and was much easier to
purchase as now our primary supplier for turf products will carry it
for us. It has received some good reviews and is currently available
and in quantity which will help keep the cost down.
• GreenMatch worked but the rates are slightly higher with warmer
air temperatures required for applications. I have found in any of
the applications we will have to do multiple applications in some
areas to achieve the desired goals of the product.
