Today the ecological, ecological and sociological problems of conventional agriculture are of great concern. Accordingly, organic farming should be viewed as an alternative approach that provides safe and healthy nutrition by eliminating synthetic pesticides and fertilizers with the least loss of nutrients and energy and the least negative impact on the environment. Organic farming is guided by the idea that all processes within an agro-ecosystem are interdependent and it aims to achieve efficiency, diversity, self-sufficiency, self-regulation and resilience through natural processes using the ecological possibilities of the agricultural system. Disease management in organic farming is based on maintaining biodiversity and soil health. In this review, a brief description of organic farming is given first. The next other practices used in organic farming to control disease include sanitation, organic soil improvement, long-term crop rotations, reduced tillage, the right harvesting time, the selection of crops and varieties, and the use of catch crops and also, catch crop cultivation. In conclusion, organic farming has the potential to improve the recycling of biomass and optimize the availability of nutrients and ensure favorable soil conditions for plant growth.
