STERF together with the Nordic golf sector, universities and research institutions and authorities will take responsibility for ensuring that R&D activities that are important for integrated pest management are coordinated and executed and that new knowledge is delivered. STERF will contribute to the development of expertise within integrated pest management through communicating new knowledge and tried and tested
experience in an integrated pest management perspective. STERF in partnership with consultants and good practitioners will take responsibility for ensuring that a Nordic model for systematic documentation of golf course maintenance is developed.

This R&D programme is intended to act as data support that allows the golf sector to access the funding set aside by the Nordic authorities for R&D and communication to facilitate the implementation of integrated pest management. The programme has been very well received by authorities on different levels.
