Production Guide for Organic Spinach
This guide for organic production of spinach provides an outline of cultural and pest management practices and includes topics that have an impact on improving plant health and reducing pest problems. It is divided into sections, but the interrelated quality of organic cropping systems makes each section relevant to the others.
This guide attempts to compile the most current information available, but acknowledges that effective means of control are not available for some pests. More research on growing crops organically is needed, especially in the area of pest management. Future revisions will incorporate new information providing organic growers with a complete set of useful practices to help them achieve success.
