Description
In this webinar Rex Dufour, National Center for Appropriate Technology, discusses basic principles and practices for managing pests, focusing on the role of healthy soils in controlling pests, the importance of biodiversity and habitats for beneficial insects. Pest management in organic production systems is reliant on many factors – “small hammers” - working together. This is accomplished by supporting the system’s ecology, both above and below ground. The webinar is targeted both to newcomers and experienced organic farmers. Webinar contents are based on experiences made in the United States but concepts and hints can be applied in other countries.
