A new study by researchers at the University of California-Davis, UC Davis, and UC San Diego has uncovered the biggest problem with artificial turf: it doesn’t make the grass greener.
The study, published in PLOS ONE, analyzed the results of six years of data from the Botanic Gardens in San Diego, California, as well as a third of the more than 2,000 acres of turf at the UC Davis Botanic Garden.
According to the study, the number of grass-killing insects and other pests on artificial turf averaged only 0.6 percent, compared to the national average of 12.4 percent.
That’s lower than the 0.5 percent average for grasslands on grass, which have the highest rate of pest mortality.
But it’s worse than grasslands that don’t have a large number of lawns.
For the UC-Davis Botanic, the average number of pests was 0.3 percent, while for the UC San Francisco Botanical Garden it was 2.2 percent.
For lawns, the researchers found a similar, lower average, with an average pest of 0.1 percent.
The authors note that the data doesn’t address the fact that lawns are not treated with herbicides that kill all weeds.
They also note that a study from the same UC-San Francisco study found that artificial turf was less effective than grassland, and that grasslands can actually kill more pests than artificial turf.
That study was published in the peer-reviewed journal Science Advances.
“So, for our purposes, this is really the same kind of study that has been done for grassland,” study co-author Jason Fong, a botanist at UC Davis and UC Davis’ Charles Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research, told Axios.
“We’re not using any of the same methods that have been used to study turfgrass and lawns.”
Fong and his team compared the results from the UC Botanic and UC SF Botanic gardens to grasslands.
The UC Botanical garden has an average of 16,500 acres, while the UC SF gardens have an average total of 7,200 acres.
The average number the UC’s gardens had of pest-killed insects was less than half the national averages.
“For grasslands, we’re getting about one-fifth of what we are getting from turf,” Fong said.
“But for artificial turf, we’ve got 10 times as many insects, and we’re also getting 20 times as much of a pest-killing effect.”
The UC-SF researchers also looked at the number and type of grass species found in each garden, along with the number that were either native to the UC and UC-Botanic gardens, or that had been introduced to the two gardens.
For instance, the UC gardens had grasses native to California native to nearly 100 percent of the land, whereas the UC farms had grass native to both the UCs and UCs.
In the UC, native grasses outnumbered native grass in the UC farmlands.
That means that the UC plants in the grasslands had more grass species, and those species outnumbered the native grass species in the California farms.
But the UC grassland plants also had more species of bugs, which are important in grasslands because they can transmit disease.
“If you have a small number of bugs in the soil, they are able to transmit disease to other plants, which can lead to erosion and weed damage,” Fung said.
The bugs also can eat the dead plants of other plants.
In other words, if you have grass that is native to a different state, and then you plant grass in your lawn, that grass species can spread disease to native grass.
“It’s not just about turf, but about all the different kinds of grasses that are in the ground,” Fongs said.
It’s a good thing that the study looked at grasslands but it doesn,t necessarily apply to grass in other places.
“There are so many different kinds and types of grassland that we can grow in the United States,” FONG said.
He added that artificial grass isn’t going to be able to eradicate all the problems that the grassland systems in the world have, like the lack of a reliable way to monitor and monitor soil health.
He noted that the UCR’s turf program is working on ways to improve soil health and improve its quality of life, but it won’t be easy.
The researchers also say that artificial soil isn’t the answer to all the issues surrounding lawns because it doesn-t do much to reduce the amount of erosion and soil pollution that occur in lawns over time.
Fong says it’s more likely that the problems stem from other problems in the environment, such as the use of herbicides and pesticides that damage the grass and the surrounding soil.
Fung also says that artificial lawns may not be a solution to all of the issues associated with lawn
