In Beginningfarmers.org's Readers Survey, a number of people mentioned that they would like to see more research data presented on the site. As part of my attempt to begin bringing this research to you, I would like to feature the site Organic Eprints - a searchable database of research articles on organic production (mostly European) many of which are free to download by the public, and more of which are free with membership (click HERE to create an account for free). I highly recommend it to organic and sustainable farmers interested in the latest research data.
Below (Click Read More) I list just a few of the articles (with links) that a quick search using the term 'pest control' brought up.
Also, if you haven't yet taken Beginningfarmers.org's Visitor Survey, please take just a few minutes to do so. The results are extremely helpful to me in providing you with the information you want to see. - TaylorPractice Oriented Results on Use and Production of Plant Extracts and Pheromones in Integrated and Biological Pest Control.
