Why rotate crops?
Every crop is prone to being affected by specific diseases, weeds and insects. Rotating crops reduces these risks. Additionally, every crop requires different nutrients and rotating crops with different types of root structures allows crops to use moisture and nutrients from different soil depths.
Biodiversity refers to the number of species and ecosystems in a region and the health of an ecosystem. Biodiversity can reduce the impact harmful insects have on crops, reduce the amount of fertilizer and help manage weed infestations.
