How to Prevent Pests and Disease Problems

Here farmers can find information about how to control pests and diseases in natural ways without the use of toxic chemicals. You will notice that the guidance for controlling each pest and disease below includes cultural techniques to make the soil healthy and to restore the soil food web.

We believe the logical solution to organic pest control is to create a balance of organisms in your soil. In a diverse ecosystem pest populations are regulated naturally. Development of this balance relies on products that minimize harm to pollinators and other beneficial insects. Traps and pheromone lures can be used to identify the presence of pests, and to help control them. If pests are present the least-toxic solutions should be used first, i.e. barriers, repellents, beneficial insects, biological pesticides, soaps, and oils, with the more toxic (but short lived) botanical or natural pesticides used only if necessary.
