Introduction

Managing the complex biological system of an organic small grain farm can be a challenge, particularly in terms of disease and insect management.

Because synthetic fungicides and insecticides are generally not allowed in an organic system, prevention is the main strategy for avoiding pest problems. Successful prevention usually involves many different strategies in combination, rather than relying on a single one.

The purpose of this publication is to outline various strategies that make up a good organic disease and insect management plan, as well as to describe some specific diseases and insects that affect small grain crops. Although this publication pertains to various regions of the country, the main focus is on the Plains states—where most organic small grains are grown.
