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. ATTRA attempted to limit the text to provide only useful take-home’ messages for farmers. This publication was distilled from a series of PowerPoint presentations, 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).
