Ortho Garden Disease Control (Daconil) ? Organic?
I have a terrible time with early blight on my tomato plants in a small backyard garden. This year I have been regularly spraying with Daconil via Ortho Garden Disease Control. I thought I was following organic practices but recently read on another forum that Daconil is not organic and that spraying Copper is preferred. I have avoided Copper because I read it is bad for the insect population. What is true? and are there other better controls for fungal diseases? Despite spraying pretty regularly with the Daconil, I have already pulled several plants with severe EB. This year I used 2x2 spacing, but because my area is enclosed, I think I will try 3x3 next year and perhaps that will help. Other veggies are also affected- my beans have rust and I think that is the same thing I am noticing on my okra. I would love to hear some advice from experienced organic gardeners!
