Soil Salinity and its Effects on Turfgrass Pests
Clemson Extension Program Team
Management of soil salinity and pests are among the most critical components of maintaining a healthy stand of turfgrass. Salinity and pest management are increasingly severe issues for turfgrass managers in recent years. Individually, soil salinity and pests cause a great deal of damage to most turfgrass species; in combination, their impacts on turfgrass health are highly situational. This article aims to introduce and inform turfgrass management professionals, extension agents, and research institutions about an unconventional relationship between soil salinity and turfgrass pest management.
