FIVE EXAMPLES

of Field Amendments and Items that are Organic:

GENETIC MATERIAL

(seed, transplants or trees)

Heirloom and hybrid seeds are both permitted in organic farming systems. GMOs are not permitted, nor are seeds treated with non-organic fungicides or pesticides.

FERTILIZERS

(items used to feed crops and soil)

Organic examples include cover crops, green waste compost, processed chicken feathers, processed fish and seaweed products, gypsum and sulfur.

HERBICIDES

(items used to control weeds)

There are not many effective organic herbicides. Hand weeding and maintaining clean fields are the most effective methods. There are some plant oils, natural acids and flame burners that may also be used.

PESTICIDES

(items used to control pests)

There are some effective soaps, predatory insects, plant-based extracts and bacteria used to organically control insect pests. Rodents, mammals or birds are controlled with deterrent 

and they may be trapped if permitted by the local fish and game regulations. The truth is that often, on organic farms, the pests win, and the crop is lost. 

FUNGICIDES

(items used to control fungi)

Sulfur dust and copper are organic materials that are permitted organic materials.
