Safe Insecticides and fungicides to use during harvest

I have been searching for safe insecticides and fungicides one can use during harvest time of vegetables. I don't want them to contaminate the produce due to their bad health effect. Pls anyone that knows should list them here.

Consider neem oil as both insecticide and fungicide. www.farmersjoint.com/blog/crop-and-plantation/crops/neem-seed-extract-as-a-pesticide/.

Safe insecticides that break down rapidly under the sun includes emamectin benzoate and abamectin. For fungicide, neem oil and copper-base sprays comes to mind. There are others I don't know yet oo.
