Growing different crops in recurring succession on the same land. Rotation is done to replenish soil fertility and to keep down pest populations in order to increase the potential for high levels of production in future years. We are sorry to tell you that it does not involve a turntable.
Varying from year to year what is grown on a particular piece of land. This practice helps to avoid the build-up of pests and diseases specific to a particular crop. One crop may also put back into the soil nutrients taken out by another.
the successive planting of different crops on the same land to improve soil fertility and help control insects and diseases.
Planting different crops in the same place two years in the row.
A 3 or 4 year cycle of moving vegetable crops into different beds to prevent the increase of plant specific pests and diseases.
Planting the same field or areas of fields with different crops from year to year to reduce depletion of soil nutrients. A plant such as corn, tobacco, or cotton, which removes large amounts of nitrogen from the soil, is planted one year. The next year a legume such as soybeans, which add nitrogen to the soil, is planted.
The soil of an area that has the same plant in it year after year can become stripped of certain nutrients. To avoid this result, it is necessary to plant different species yearly. Planting species that require other nutrients or that can replenish the soil of a depleted nutrient ensures a healthy soil over the long term and is thus sustainable.
Planting a field, or an area of a field, with different crops from year to year to reduce soil nutrient depletion. A plant such as corn, tobacco, or cotton, which removes large amounts of nitrogen from the soil, is planted one year. The next year a legume such as soybeans, which adds nitrogen to the soil, is planted.
The growing of different crops on the same land in recurring succession.
The planting of different crops on the same piece of land to improve soil fertility and help control insects and disease.
the sequence of cropping on one field. Fodder - crop grown for animal food either eaten immediately or preserved.
A farming technique that utilizes growing crops in sequences.
A soil conservation technique involving changing crops grown on a given parcel of land from year to year. Crop rotations may include fallow periods.
production of crops alternatively on the same piece of soil in consecutive seasons
a multiple year plan for what crops you will grow in a particular field
a recurring sequence of crops on a particular field
The practice of planting different crops each season so that the soil has time to renew itself
Annual rotation of growing positions of any one type of crop. This reduces the build up of pests and diseases and minimises the amount of same plant foods being removed from the soil
Growing a different crop on the same piece of land each year to reduce soilborne diseases and to vary the nutrient uptake of plants.
Periodical cultivation of a field with differing crops in succession
Changing the type of crop grown on the same land from year to year or periodically to control weeds, insects, disease, and replenish soil nutrients or reduce erosion.
A farming system which rotates the crops grown on the same piece of land rather than planting the same crop year after year. Organic farms often use this system to avoid pests who prey in the same crop year on year.
A planned sequence of crops.
Repeated sequence of crops from season to season
A system of planting where crops vary from season to season; one crop is not grown each year as a new one replaces the one before.
Planting different crops each season to let the soil torenew itself
a farming technique whereby different types of crops are grown over successive seasons
Crop rotation is nothing new to farmers (or gardeners); the technique has been around for ages. Simply, it is the process of alternating, every year, which crops will grow in a certain area. To benefit form rotation, the plants chosen to immediately succeed each other should not make the same demands on the soil (nutrient wise), they should not be susceptible to the same diseases or pests, and they should be of different families, which will also help avoid continuing pest and disease problems. Usually, as part of the rotation, legumes are grown to provide available nitrogen for the crops that follow.
The growing of different crops in recurring succession on the same land (USEPA, 1993).
The practice of growing a sequence of different crops on the same land in successive years or seasons; done to replenish the soil, curb pests, etc. ()
Planting a succession of different crops on the same land as opposed to planting the same crop time after time.
the system by which farmers would rotate the types of crops grown in each field as to not deplete the soil of its natural resources. (p. 633)
The growing of different crops, in recurring succession, on the same land in contrast to monoculture cropping. Rotation usually is done to replenish soil fertility and to reduce pest populations in order to increase the potential for high levels of production in future years. Precise assessments of pest pressure (typically insects) and crop performance to evaluate economic risk from pest infestations and the potential effectiveness of pest control interventions. Scouting is usually sold as a commercial service to farmers.
The practice of growing different crops in succession on the same land, chiefly to preserve the productive capacity of the soil.
A system of farming in which a regular succession of different crops are planted on the same land area, as opposed to growing the same crop time after time (monoculture).
Crop rotation is the practice of growing a series of dissimilar types of crops in the same space in sequential seasons to avoid the buildup of pathogens and pests that often occurs when one species is continuously cropped. Crop rotation also seeks to balance the fertility demands of various crops to avoid excessive depletion of soil nutrients. A traditional component of crop rotation is the replenishment of nitrogen through the use of green manure in sequence with cereals and other crops.
