Identifying and Controlling Vegetable Diseases Organically


Workshop audio recordings from the 2015 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


Presenters: Erin Silva, Amanda Gevens, UW-Madison, and Beth Kazmar, Tipi Produce
Friday 3

Managing diseases on an organic vegetable farm requires planning and a proactive approach. We’ll provide an overview of the tools an organic farmer can use to proactively manage disease—such as variety selection, crop rotation, row spacing, and irrigation—and allowed products that can be used if conditions are conducive to disease development. We’ll also address specific crop/disease combinations.
