Summary

The adoption of organic agriculture has been limited in Africa by inadequate organic alternatives in addressing some agricultural problems. This survey therefore sought to identify some of the ecological traditional methods that could conform to organic standards. Farmers with vast experience in both crop and livestock production, from various parts of Nigeria were gathered using a focused group discussion (FGD), in the year 2017. Various traditional knowledge were captured from the FGD and the ones that were organic standard compliant documented. The information captured covered crop protection, livestock health management, preservation methods, bio-security, fruit set induction, etc. However, the efforts of scientist shall be required to validate and or calibrate some of the methods, which could serve as efficient alternatives (to conventional methods) in organic system.
