Abstract:

The paper reviews about the Integrated Disease Management in organic farming. Combined practices are always more effective as the methods adopted compensates each other. Various cultural practices like crop rotation, use of disease free planting material, seed treatment with biocontrol agents, organic amendments, etc are discussed here. The control of crown gall of stone fruit trees (Agrobacterium radiobacter pv. tumefaciens) by avirulent bacteriocin producing Agrobacterium pv. radiobacter strain K84 is one known practical method of biological control on a field scale. Trichoderma spp., Pseudomonas fluorescens, Bacillus subtilis, Penicillium, etc. are some of the known biocontrol agents. Mixed cropping of cotton and moth bean reduced the incidence of root rot of cotton caused by Rhizoctonia solani and Macrophomina phaseolina. India’s rich heritage of agricultural traditions makes it suitable for designing organic farming systems. With greater political will and investment in research, extension and marketing infrastructure, more of this potential could be realized. With increasing demand for organic products in India, certification and regulation of organic sector came into being and thrived. Organic farming sector in India has substantially increased over the course of years. More awareness needs to be created among the farmers for gaining a sustainable livelihood.
