The Cornell Sports Field Management Website was developed by the Cornell Turfgrass team with input from Cornell Cooperative Extension colleagues and sports turf grounds managers from across New York State. Funding was provided by the Community IPM Initiative of the New York State Integrated Pest Management Program to support the Child Safe Playing Fields Act.
This website provides the latest Best Management Practices and resources necessary for maintaining safe and functional school and community sports fields.
Grounds managers, coaches, athletic directors, administrators, community members and others will find the information useful when evaluating their fields for safety and performance.
The site includes management schedules for high, medium and minimal resourced fields and will aid in determining when and how to use resources.
Please give us feedback through the contact form and let us know what additional information will help you improve the safety and performance of your sports fields.
