. Insect pests have been one of the main constraints affecting turf sod cultivation areas, playgrounds, parks, golf courses, airports and other related recreational grounds. However, turfgrass research has been very limited and confined within a limited period of time compared to other branches of crop science in Korea. This review was surveyed from all papers in KCI (Korea Citation Index), SCI (Scientific Citation Index) and SCIE (SCI Expended) journals related to turfgrass research in Korea…

Molecular phylogeny of several species of Hoplolaimina (Nematoda: Tylenchida) associated with turfgrass in Korea, with comments on their morphology
The COI gene sequences exhibit minimum intraspecific variation and thus might be the most powerful DNA barcoding marker for the precise identification of P. zeae and should therefore be recommended as a complementary technique in the identification process of the species.


Analysis of Research Trend on Zoysiagrass (Zoysia spp.)
Korean lawn grass, which belongs to Zoysia genus in Gramineae family, is one of the major turfgrass which is widely adapted to its native niches in the temperate region of the north east Asia through
Insect Pests in Turf Sod Production Areas in Korea
Zoysiagrass mite and A. ipsilon were main insect pests in turf sod production areas in Korea.
Prospects for managing turfgrass pests with reduced chemical inputs.
Nurturing the public's interest in wildlife habitat preservation, including beneficial insects, may be one means to change aesthetic perceptions and gain leeway for implementing integrated pest management practices that lend stability to turfgrass settings.
Moth (Lepidoptera) Fauna of Golf Courses in Jinju, Gyeongsangnamdo, Korea
Moths were collected to survey turfgrass pest and to compare species diversity from Jinju Country Club in Jinju, Gyeongsangnamdo, Korea, every 10 days using 200W mercury light trap from middle May to late October in 2008 to study species diversity and dominance index of moth was increased from October compared with diverse index and richness index were decreased from October.
Sod Production and Current Status of Cultivation Management in Korea
To investigate the actual condition of production and management of sod, a questionnaire was ask to 57 farmers in major cultivated areas of turf sod in Korea in 2010 and 2011. The results of the
Earthworm Composition and Seasonal Population Structure in Different Korean Golf Courses
Seasonal population of earthworm was different depending on earthworm species (Am. hupeiensis was the highest in August and Ap. caliginosa was in April), however small number of collected earthworms were not dominant trend in golf courses.
Damage Report on a Newly Recorded Coleopteran Pest, Aphanisticus congener (Coleoptera: Buprestidae) from Turfgrass in Korea
The new coleopteran pest may be a warm-adapted pest for turfgrass, damaging turfgrass leaf only in warmer conditions.
Occurrence of Earthworm and Effect of Plant Extracts on Earthworm in Golf Courses
Effect of plant extracts such as mustard oil, wintergreen oil, Quisqualis indica, Daphne genkwa, Pharbitis nil, Zingiber officinale, Xanthium strumarium, and Camellia sinensis on earthworm were highly toxic to earthworm, Eisenia andrei.
Distribution and Adult Activity of Popillia quadriguttata (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) on Golf Courses in Korea
Japanese beetle traps baited with the Popillia japonica Newman (Coleoptera: Scarabaeidae) pheromone lure and a eugenol feeding attractant were placed at five golf courses in Korea to evaluate as potential biocontrol organisms for the very closely related species, the Japanese beetle.
Biological Control of the Black Cutworm, Agrotis ipsilon (Lepidoptera: Noctuidae) with the Korean Entomopathogenic Nematode, Steinernema carpocapsae GSN1 Strain (Rhabditida: Steinernematidae) in Turfgrasses
Evaluation of efficacy of Steinernema carpocapsae GSN1 strain (ScG), a Korean isolate, as a biological control agent against black cutworm in turfgrass of golf courses found it higher against 4th instars than against 2nd instars, and higher against 3 rd instars in creeping bentgrass.
