Language is such a little twister, ain't it?
Why would farmers want to experiment with home-remedies,
such things as herbal extracts (cinnamon oil), household items
(baking soda, hydrogen peroxide), biostimulants (farm pond
algae-slime, manure fermented in a cow's horn/BD 500,
herbal teas of comfrey or nettle), etc?
I think the answer is simple, because they have brains
with which to manage a system through enhancing the
health and ecology of the rhizosphere and phyllosphere
instead of relying on purchased pest control inputs. And more
importantly, there are still quite a few bugs and diseases that defy
control by synthetic-conventional or biorational or
certified-organic-approved pesticides. Such is the case with
hydrogen peroxide experimentation on early blight for tomatoes,
compost teas for late blight on potatoes, etc, etc.
