Take This 60 Second Quiz To Determine How Healthy Is Your Poop
Pesticides are the only toxic chemicals people intentionally release in nature with the purpose to kill living beings. However, besides killing pests, these products can also harm people. In this post, you’ll learn how to make organic pesticides that will replace the commercial toxic ones like Roundup.
The organic food you can find in any supermarket isn’t necessarily entirely free from chemicals or pesticides. As a matter of fact, a lot of organic farmers are using various chemical sprays on their crops, and they are allowed to do so.
If you are interested in your own organic gardening, there are few organic pesticides you can use that not only are effective at warding off pesky insects and weeds but are also safe for humans.
Organic vs. Non Organic Pesticides
First, let’s explain what is organic here. It means the use of pesticides produced from natural sources. They might be lightly processed before usage as well. On the other hand, the conventional agriculture uses pesticides which are synthetically manufactured.
Also, most organic farmers use biological controls and insect traps to help prevent insects eating the crops.
What’s more, organic farmers can’t use the pesticide application equipment which has been used for applying synthetic chemicals for three or more years. The NCFAP explains that sulfur and copper were the top two organic fungicides.
Therefore, you have to know your farmer to make sure he uses the right equipment and proper organic pesticides. Ask the farmers at your local farmers’ market and learn their methods to know what you’re eating.
