Abstract

This study aims to investigate the amount and kinds of pesticide applied on 59 golf courses in Korea. In the previous studies with similar themes as this one, we have referred to only 4 golf courses in general concerning the pesticides and their orders frequently used on golf courses in Korea. The total amount of pesticides used on all the golf courses in Korea in 1991 was 78,555 kg, and thereby the average amount of pesticides per golf course was 1,331 kg. Most frequently used pesticides were thiophanate-methyl, bensulide, polyoxin D-thiram, fenitrothion, triadimefon, carbofuran, napropamide, tolclos-methyl, iprodione, etc.. The applied amount of pesticides on golf courses located in the vicinity of big cities was twice as much as used in other areas.

Keywords: Pesticide, Golf course, Korea


1. Introduction

Recently, with the economic growth in Korea, the number of people visiting golf courses for health promotion and recreation is increasing. Along with this increase in the golfing population, the health risks caused by pesticide application in golf courses have begun to attract social attention. Around 80 kinds of pesticide were used on golf courses in Korea. Presently, there are over 1.5 millions golfers in Korea.

Pesticides have been a serious health problem for Korean people. Korea had been predominantly an agricultural nation where rice farming was an important part until it has been changed into a industrial country since 1970. Therefore, pesticides are still widely used on rice fields. Since no special license or qualification are required for handling pesticides in Korea, pesticides can be easily purchased and sprayed anywhere. Such use of pesticides by nonprofessional persons results in many problems specially in the aspects of selection of pesticides, methods of the spraying of pesticides, body protection
