No, Strom’s practices Integrated Pest Management (IPM). It is the method of farming Strom’s has used for many years. In the past, farmers approached pest management by spraying before any pest problems were present. With IPM farming, pesticides are applied only when the benefits outweigh the costs, which gets the best possible results and the most value from the product.  Strom’s uses this method as opposed to organic farming because we feel it is the most beneficial and results in the best product.

Many people assume ‘organic’ means the product is pesticide-free, but this is not true. Organic farmers often spray as much or more pesticides than other farmers.  The spray materials they use are ‘natural’, even though they may be just as potent as non-organic materials. The pesticides we apply eliminate insect, disease, and weed pest problems but do not eradicate all pests. All pest management options are considered, including natural, biological, cultural, and chemical methods.

Regular inspection (monitoring) of the plants and crops determine whether pests are approaching damaging levels; the mere presence of a pest is not enough reason to apply a control measure. The number of pests present must be sufficient to cause enough harm to pay for the control measure. IPM means treating only when pests reach or exceed the ‘action threshold’ (the point where the number of pests justifies action).
