    General Information

    Danger detected? Danger averted! Plant protection in organic gardens.

    The authors of this comprehensive guide use a catchy image: that of the "plant protection pie." At the bottom, keeping healthy through thoughtful variety and site selection, encouraging beneficial insects, tilling the soil, and keeping crop rotation in the vegetable patch. This is the thickest layer. Above it, as a second cake layer, fertilization and plant strengthening with broths, for example, from horsetail or nettle, with compost teas and other aids. As a third layer, again somewhat smaller: physical, biological and biotechnical measures (culture protection nets, glue rings, impact traps, color traps, pheromones and so on). And on top, presented as the cherry on top of the cake - not because they are the best, but because they should always be used sparingly - ecological crop protection products made from active ingredients that are approved in organic farming or contain only natural ingredients. Prevention instead of spraying is the motto. Recognizing and identifying pests, causes of damage and signs of disease are helped by the more than 500 color illustrations and detailed explanations that this book brings together. Separate chapters are devoted to weed control and lawn care without chemicals. Finally, the "garden detective" accompanies you as a reader on a tour of your garden and asks a series of questions, in the answer to which often already lies the key to the solution (and treatment of infested plant parts).
