    WK56652

    1. Scope

    Different types of athletic field installations have different levels of use and expectations of performance. For example, professional or collegiate athletic fields have a higher level of maintenance than high school or general recreational-use playing fields. These areas will have different acceptance for weed pressure and different amounts of effort will be needed to produce these results. This guide will assist in determining what management is needed for a particular type of athletic field and the given level of performance or use expectations.
