Common NRCS Practices Related to Pest Management on Organic Farms

The purpose of this document is to demonstrate how certain NRCS practices that have primary resource protection benefits can also have significant Integrated Pest Management (IPM) benefits to organic producers. This document discusses practice purposes that might be used to support a client’s pest management activities. While pest management itself might explicitly serve a production purpose, when adopted, many of the NRCS practices below serve to reduce chemical usage and impacts and provide numerous ecosystem services on organic and non-organic operations alike.
