Here at Iowa Orchard we grow around 20 varieties of apples. Our apples are not organic, but they are IPM grown. Integrated Pest Management emphasizes the growth of a healthy crop with the least possible disruption to agro-ecosystems and encourages natural pest control mechanisms. For example, we plant only disease resistant apple varieties to avoid unnecessary sprays in a future.
