Organic IPM Field Guide

FREE

<p>The idea behind this field guide was to provide a pictorial guide about the concepts of organic IPM and important pests and
beneficials. The focus of the document is implementing ecologically-based strategies to prevent pests from becoming a problem in the first place. We have attempted to limit the text to provide only useful “take-home” messages for farmers. This publication was distilled from a series of powerpoint shows, developed by Martin Guerena and Ann Baier, that were part of an organic pest management training course hosted by the Agricultural Land Based Training Association (ALBA) of Salinas, California. This effort was funded jointly by the Organic Farming Research Foundation (OFRF) and the ATTRA Project of the National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT).</p>

Printing the Field Guides
We recommend that you print these on a color printer and laminate the pages (1 &amp; 2 back-to-back, 3 &amp; 4 back-to-back, 5 &amp; 6 back-to-back, etc.). Then punch holes in the top left corners of the odd-numbered pages and attach them together with a ring or wire so you can use them in the field.
