I've used chili peppers/garlic blended up into a paste and mixed with water as an organic pesticide - I don't really like using chemicals and that concoction has worked pretty well.

Same here, the chilly pepper + garlic blend works good. I add 1/2 tea spoon of kitchen oil so the mix sticks to the plant better. I rinse the plant every time I water it.

Our main concern when it comes to organic is the natural fertilizer. We have a hole on the ground, 1 foot deep and 1 foot in diameter that serves as the compost bin where we can throw anything that is biodegradable. When that is filled, we dig another hole and then another. After a month or 2, the first hole is already ripe for the compost to be used as fertilizer for the plants. That way, our garden has a semblance of being truly organic.

You can grow your own indigenous microorganisms using ricewater, molasses and some inoculum which can be easily obtained by exposing the mixture to the atmosphere. This should be mixed in a plastic container. Cover it and then expose it to the air for sometime before covering with a cloth for about a week. This can be applied to your crops as cheap and efficient foliar feed.

I live in a farm and I have cattle. Most of my organic fertilizer is derived from decomposing of cattle manure. I use cattle compost on my flowering plants and vegetables. I grow corn and rice as well, however, I don't use organic fertilizer on my cereal because I don't produce enough. Since some time I am trying to make more compost so that I don't have to use chemical fertilizer
