Crop Rotation and other growing techniques for Sustainable Ag.
Techniques used by sustainable farms include:
Crop rotation – which involves planting crops in different places each season in order to replenish nutrients removed from the soil by a particular plant.
Inter-cropping – a method of planting crops in close proximity.
These practices help to break pest cycles, allow the soil to naturally replenish itself, help reduce weeds, and encourage plant diversity in order to avoid insect and pest infestation.
