STMA Best Management Practices

Best Management Practices for the Sports Field Manager: A Professional Guide for Sports Field Management serves as a comprehensive compilation of environmental best practices for STMA members and non-members, equipping them with the tools and resources to document solid environmental practices for legislators, regulators, employers and community constituents. Although members have been following excellent practices, this program validates those and positions the Sports Field Manager as a strong steward of the environment, which will aid in educating decision makers.

Spanning more than 100 pages, the guide includes 12 unique sections:

  • Ø  Planning, Design, and Construction
  • Ø  Turfgrass Establishment
  • Ø  Cultural Practices: Mowing
  • Ø  Cultural Practices: Nutrient Management
