Abstract:

Pesticides used by organic farmers must meet specific criteria established by the National Organic Program. Information about the how well the products work can be scarce in some cases, and difficult to find. We conducted trials on products allowed for organic production against several insect and disease pests important on organic farms and shared results with farmers and extension field staff through newsletter articles, educational meetings, and in organic production guides.
